If your business has participated and/or has been approved as a Made in Maui County Festival vendor, you are eligible to be a seller on Made in Maui County Shoppers Marketplace (aka “The Marketplace”) Directory.
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 products by businesses based on the Hawaiian islands of Maui, Molokai and Lanai. We feature a sampling of your made-in-Maui-County products and link directly to your website. Don’t have a website that features your products? That’s okay. The Marketplace provides prospective buyers with information on how to contact you. This online shopping resource is an excellent way to showcase and promote your business year-round to a targeted audience – wholesale buyers, distributors, and consumers seeking authentic locally made Hawaii products.
Advantages for sellers participating in The Made in Maui County Marketplace:
If you’re a past or current Made in Maui County Festival vendor, you automatically qualify to be featured on the Made in Maui County Marketplace site! As a Marketplace membership your benefits include:
Made in Maui County Marketplace membership fees and benefits:
|Tapa Level||La’au Level||Pohaku Level|
|Product posts* on your own Vendor’s Profile page||3||6||12|
|Annual Membership Fee||$25||$50||$75|

** 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 Made in Maui County item, it is removed from that list so that other products have an equal chance of being shown. The merchandise 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 MadeInMauiCounty.com visitor.
