Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The vibe is funky and eclectic. This authentic public market in downtown Ferndale, just outside of Detroit, is home to artists and vintage vendors during the day and memorable private events at night. A wooden chevron wall and archway provide a visually striking backdrop.
  • It can host both your ceremony and reception. The event space is thoughtfully laid out to easily accommodate various guest counts, and the twinkle lights, exposed ductwork, tree-branch light fixtures, and neutral tones create a modern yet warm ambiance.
  • Revel Bar makes it easy to get the party started. This full-service bar is adjacent to the main room, and craft beer is included with all bar packages (additional options are available). There's also a catering prep kitchen and convenient parking for food trucks.
