Crowdfunding roundup: Pittsburgh Public Market, punk rock prom, Greek yogurt and more

Every now and again, we like to update you on some currently active crowdfunding campaigns around town. Here's what's going on right now:

— The Pittsburgh Public Market is in the final days of a Kickstarter drive to raise the remaining $10,000 needed to finish construction of a $600,000 commercial-grade kitchen, which culinary entrepreneurs can rent hourly. You can read more about the fund drive — which ends Thu., July 31 — in tomorrow's City Paper. Donor rewards include brunches and cooking classes.

— The folks behind PittPunk.com are crowdfunding a Punk Rock Prom — basically a dance, on a boat, for adults. But also for people under 21. With punk rock. Who doesn't like dancing on a boat?!

— Some folks are raising money to start a local Greek yogurt business: Naturi would use organic milk from grass-fed cows. You probably won't see John Stamos at the launch party, but it still sounds pretty tasty.

— The Pittsburgh Jazz Wax Museum, featured in last week's CP, hasn't gotten too close to its goal yet, but there's still a week to go — why not give it a push?
