Our mission at Made Local is to create space for small businesses to connect and grow through their communities.
Made Local was founded by two Registered Nurses who owned small businesses selling their handmade art in their free time. In 2019, Abby Jacobs & Taylor Bedetti began pursuing their dream of building better opportunities for small businesses to thrive in Southern California. Their passion led to Made Local launching an online website for vendors selling their products locally during the pandemic in 2020. Then, as restrictions relaxed, the opportunity for Abby, Taylor & Cari to begin hosting quality pop-up market events came along in 2021. Today, Made Local proudly showcases the talents of local entrepreneurs and coordinates several pop-up marketplaces, serving hundreds of small businesses monthly.
