Saturday, March 7th, Crafty Mart is proud to present their second pop up market in conjunction with the Akron Artwalk. From 5pm-9pm there will be more than twenty local vendors of handmade goods on the third floor of Summit Artspace (140 E Market St, Akron, OH 44308.)

This month’s event is entitled The Nerdy Pop Up Market and includes vendors featuring items that celebrate geekiness, nerdiness, and pop culture obsessions. The Nerdy Pop Up Market theme has been chosen to honor Pi Day which takes place next week. Pi Day is a celebratory time by nerds of all stripes who cleverly recognize that the day March 14, 2015 can also be seen as 3.1415--the first five significant digits of the mathematical constant (pi.) Here is a preview of some of the vendors and their geeky goods.
