Milwaukee Makers Market; small businesses share their wares
Small businesses took over part of Discovery World in Milwaukee on Sunday, Sept. 18 for the Milwaukee Makers Market.
“OK, these are our half-pound, stuffed cookies,” Mallo said. “I have five different flavors.”
Mallo had a collection of sweet treats available for purchase.
“Peanut butter Oreo. People love peanut butter. They like chocolate. They like Oreos,” Mallo said.
“Whether it’s clothing, jewelry, treats – something that is made local that you’re going to connect with,” said Ryan Laessig.
Laessig said the market highlights local businesses.
“Milwaukee needs something like this where you can come to a place like this, and it’s your one-stop shop,” Laessig said.
The items varied – from clothes, soaps, candles, artwork and more. Laessig said the community helps small businesses thrive.
“Every Milwaukee Makers Market, you’re going to see 50% of what I call veterans. They come back every year. The rest is going to be all new people,” Laessig said.
“I think it’s a great concept. I think Milwaukee always supports Milwaukee,” Mallo said.
