Minding Our Biz

The spring and summer is all about getting out, going somewhere new and shaking off those cold-weather blues — even though, to be fair, this winter was super mild. Anyway, there are some new things brewing downtown, which means more opportunities to explore. Here are three very different businesses — that are new or reformed — you should check out on one of your strolls around town.

The Wednesday Evening Farmers Market, located at 315 Detroit St. in the Kerrytown District, begins again for the season on May 2. Running from 4:30 – 8:30pm, featuring later evening hours with the same vendors from the daytime market, the evening market focuses on agriculture-related products, allowing daytime workers to pick up some fresh midweek produce or a delicious snack or meal from one of the food carts. The season runs through Wednesday, September 26.

The popular fondue chain The Melting Pot has re-opened its downtown location, 309 Main St. The location boasts a rooftop patio — overlooking one of busiest sections of town — where patrons can enjoy the summer months while relaxing next to the Melting Pot's waterfall. For more information, call 734-622-0055.

The Tecumseh-based gift shop Rock Paper Scissors is opening a new location on 216. S. Main St. The store, which will open by June 1, carries unique items, letting customers to quickly shop for someone special or pick up an item they have always wanted for themselves. From wine glasses to personalized invitations of all kinds to quirky decor, the shop has something for everyone.
