WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – Mark your calendar for the 2018 “Made in Monmouth” event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 14 in the OceanFirst Bank Center at Monmouth University on Larchwood Avenue.

“Made in Monmouth provides an opportunity for small businesses to showcase their products that are all made right here in Monmouth County,” Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone said. “It is exciting to watch this event grow and connect visitors and residents with more vendors and new products every year. It’s so important to provide people with an opportunity to ‘shop local’ and support their fellow residents and business owners.”

Thousands of people attended the previous events which showcased jewelry, pretzels, skateboards, handmade glass, honey, cosmetics, flags, chocolate, tea and much more.  All of the items are made in Monmouth County and are available for purchase. 

Made in Monmouth is organized by the Grow Monmouth team within the County’s Division of Economic Development. Grow Monmouth officials meet regularly with business, civic and government leaders to provide state-of-the-art information services. It has become a major public-private project to create and preserve jobs in Monmouth County.

Interested producers and manufacturers for next year’s event can go to www.VisitMonmouth.com or contact the Division of Economic Development at 732-431-7470 for more information. There is no cost to the vendors or to the public.
