WEST LONG BRANCH – Monmouth County is gearing up for its third “Made in Monmouth” event to be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at Monmouth University. Admission is free.
“This event gives our talented and creative residents the opportunity to show-off and sell their merchandise that is made right here in Monmouth County,” Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone said. “With such a wide variety of vendors, offering everything from soy candles to watercolor paintings and fine jewelry, Made in Monmouth is the perfect place to spend the day and shop locally.”
Made in Monmouth is organized by the Grow Monmouth team within the county’s Division of Economic Development. Grow Monmouth officials have met with hundreds of business, civic and government leaders in recent months to provide state-of-the-art economic development services. It has become a major public-private project to create and preserve jobs in Monmouth County.
Interested producers and manufacturers are encouraged to register online at www.visitmonmouth.com or contact the County’s Division of Economic Development at 732-431-7470 for more information.
The list of participating vendors will be published on the county website at www.visitmonmouth.com.
