Industrial Country Market aka Quirky Country Market (Off the grid!) in Columbus, Texas

Remember folks…you heard it here first ūüôā … Today’s epic adventure took me to the¬†Quirky Country Market. ¬†The business was initially named Industrial Country Market but too many people didn’t realize it was opened to the public, due to the word industrial, so they are changing over to Quirky Country Market. ¬†This place is ONLY opened on the weekends and is “off the grid”…there are a ton of solar panels to accomplish going off the grid – ¬†Love that!!!
