If your business has participated and/or has been approved as a Made in Maui County Festival vendor, you are eligible to be a Vendor on Made in Maui County Shoppers Marketplace (“The Marketplace”).
The Marketplace is a project of the University of Hawaii College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) in cooperation with the County of Maui Mayor’s Office of Economic Development and the Maui Chamber of Commerce.
This is not a shopping cart website, but rather it is an online directory of locally made product vendors that will feature a sampling of your products linking directly to your website. If you do not have a website, this directory will provide prospective buyers and shoppers with information on how to contact you.
Scheduled for launch this summer, this online directory resource is an excellent way to showcase and promote your business year-round to a targeted audience – buyers, wholesalers, distributors, residents and guests who appreciate and are seeking made in Maui County products.
Other advantages of participating in The Marketplace include:

** Each time The Marketplace website is accessed by a visitor, your product is randomly selected from a list to be displayed as a “featured item.” Once a product is shown as a featured item, it is removed from that list so that other products have an equal chance of being shown. The product is then queued in the next list, waiting for all products to have their chance to appear on the site. After the final product from the first list is displayed, the list resets and all products once again can be shown with equal chance to the next MIMC.com visitor.
If you are interested in featuring your Made in Maui County products on this Made in Maui Marketplace website, please complete a Membership Form.
