Celebrate DC's locally made products this holiday season

The Yards Boilermaker Shops will play host to Production in the City and a popup market of Made-in-DC products on December 5.

It’s never been easier to buy something that bears the label “Made in DC.”

From beer to jewelry to clothing to ice cream pops, independent manufacturers are making a wide array of products right here in the District of Columbia—and they’re relying on the city’s neighborhoods to help their businesses thrive.

Join us at Production in the City to shop, celebrate and discuss how local manufacturers are connecting with DC’s neighborhoods and what DC residents can do to support the city’s local production economy.

This fourth event in Smart Growth America’s “In the City” series will showcase DC-based businesses producing food, fashion and other products. In addition, event partner Think Local First DC will host a MADE IN DC popup marketplace with 20 local vendors just in time for the holiday season.

Plus, get an exclusive sneak peek of the future home of Ideaspace, a unique space for thinkers, makers, and doers located on the Mezzanine floor of The Yards Boilermaker Shops. This space is not yet open to the public and its industrial history is a perfect setting for this exciting evening.
