Next City has a story this week on a new effort that allows local makers to proudly identify their wares as “Made in Baltimore.”

It’s a new label that can be put on a product label. Part marketing, it’s also a way to unite the smaller, light manufacturers that are working around the city and in the Baltimore’s many makerspaces.

“We see big companies shedding jobs but see a lot of people starting up their own in light manufacturing,” Andy Cook of the Baltimore Office of Sustainability told Next City.

Cook talks about how the growth of light manufacturing can form a pathway to good jobs that don’t necessarily require a college education.

The Made in Baltimore effort began to appear over the last couple of years with four pop-up shops where makers could sell their stuff, organized by the Industrial Arts Collective.
