WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – The 2019 Made in Monmouth event returns on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the OceanFirst Bank Center at Monmouth University on Larchwood Avenue.

“Made in Monmouth is a phenomenal opportunity for shoppers to support small business in the County,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Division of Economic Development. “Each year, the number of attendees and vendors increases, which shows people really love to shop local.”

Thousands of people attended the previous events, which showcased a wide variety of arts, crafts, self-care products, accessories, food and drink. All items are made in Monmouth County and 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 are encouraged to request to apply for the waitlist by contacting the Division of Economic Development by emailing or calling 732-431-7470 for more information. There is no cost to the vendors or to the public.

The list of participating vendors is published on the County website at the week prior to the event.
