The 2023 edition of the Spring Made in Monmouth event is coming up this Saturday at Brookdale Community College.
You'll find yourself in a shopping paradise with all the items being sold at the Spring Made in Monmouth event.
"We have tons of hand craft items, jewelry -- unbelievable jewelry, home decor, wine, baked goods -- there's so much more,"Monmouth County Commissioner Director Tom Arnone said. "When you come and you see all products that are made or manufactured in Monmouth County, you'll be like 'oh my gosh' -- it's really incredible."
This is an opportunity for you to do some shopping and get to know the local businesses from across Monmouth County and for them to get a boost before the summer.
"I think this is a huge jumpstart for the tourism season," Arnone said. "I think this kick starts it with all the small businesses that we have that make these unbelievable products that are made here in Monmouth."
It's like an appetizer round getting you ready for the summer season ahead to do a little shopping on those rainy or super hot days or if you just feel like heading out.
"There are people that just like to get out on a Saturday during the day, on a Sunday during the day, or during the week if they're off and they go out and do these little shopping visits," Arnone said.
It's a golden opportunity for businesses to pitch themselves to the thousands who usually come to these type of events.
"They're all small businesses and they don't have the ability and the resources to market themselves so this is a perfect, perfect way where 5,000-6,000 people could come out, take a look," Arnone said.
Whether or not someone buys any number of items, these small businesses have a golden opportunity to grow and network within the Monmouth County community.
"People continue to go back to them because now they know who they are, they take a card, they take their information and they come back for some more business at a later date," Arnone said.
The 2023 Spring Made in Monmouth expo on Saturday will run from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm in the Robert J. Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft.
