The Ohio Made Market Group, OMM, began in the summer of 2016 when co-founders Justin Poole and Michelle Kirby decided to join efforts to create a new venue for Ohio artisans (a.k.a. makers) to share their work with the Columbus Community. Justin and Michelle both have a passion for event planning, own businesses selling Ohio made products, and enjoy collaborating with other Ohio makers. This led to the creation of the Ohio Made Market. Their mission is to create a fun, welcoming and unique environment where artisans and shoppers unite to support the local economy!
The OMM debuted on November 19, 2016 with the 1st Annual Ohio Made Holiday Market. We ere proud to feature over 80 vendors highlighting their Ohio made products including home décor, apparel, food and beverage, jewelry and more! The event had an outpouring of support and we could not be more humbled by Ohio’s support to #ShopLocal!
Future plans include pop-up shops around Columbus and The Ohio Made Market Spring Fling every April. We hope to help our makers grow their businesses and help our shoppers find the best products Central Ohio has to offer! Support us by attending events and staying informed by following our Facebook Page and our Instagram Feed! We will also regularly update our website with event information. We hope you will enjoy this new adventure with us. We are proud to be part of the shop local movement!
