Voices From Around Town: Detroit Cargo and the Farmington Fun Ride

Farmington and Farmington Hills is home to many talented musicians, Detroit Cargowriters, craftspeople, and artists. Each week we will examine their work, process and creations. We are starting with Detroit Cargo, makers of fine leather goods for cyclists. Their workshop is located in Farmington and owned by Farmington Residents, Marc and Jeanie Bay.

(Note: this is the first of a new series of posts coordinated by Grow Farmington founder Vera Lucksted that will appear on Thursdays.)
