If you’re familiar with Fast Horse, you may also know of our lifestyle brand, Modern Midwest. If that’s not the case, here’s what we’re all about: We work to bring together a community of modern design and lifestyle enthusiasts across the Midwest, with an emphasis in four markets: Minneapolis, St. Louis, Detroit and Chicago. Our goal is to rebrand the Midwest from “flyover country” to a region that hosts some of the most cutting-edge and interesting design, architecture, culinary arts and fashion.

And just in time for the holidays, we’re announcing something really, really cool: Modern Market. The first-ever Modern Midwest event will be hosted right here in the North Loop at Fast Horse, and will feature a carefully curated group of local makers, local food and drink, live music and art – all of which embody the Midwest’s distinct take on modern living.

Modern Market allows guests to shop everything from “beard-centric apothecary” to modern lighting fixtures from a unique combination of local makers – a rare opportunity, since the vendors don’t operate brick and mortar storefronts – throughout four floors of event space. The building was designed by renowned Modern architect, David Salmela, and is an American Institute of Architects 2015 Honor Award winner.
