Jewelry, surfboards, cosmetics, glass, honey, flags, beer, chocolate, and tea are just some of the items that are currently being made in Monmouth County.
To show off how inventive our county is, the county’s Department of Economic Development’s Grow Monmouth Team is organizing the first 'Made in Monmouth' event.
“Monmouth County has a long and rich heritage producing goods and services,” Freeholder Deputy Director Thomas Arnone said. “From our earliest days of lumber, food, iron and boat building to today’s high-tech graphics and the arts, Monmouth County has always been creative and productive, bringing top-quality merchandise to markets here and around the world.”
The event is scheduled for March 31 at Monmouth University and will allow people an opportunity to shop local as well as give businesses a chance to showcase their locally made products.
Interested producers and manufacturers can register online at www.visitmonmouth.com. A list of participating vendors can also be viewed on the site.
