Made Local Marketplace
, the locally-minded store that boasts items and goods from hundreds of North Bay makers and manufacturers, recently expanded from their longtime location on 5th St in downtown Santa Rosa to a new storefront one block over, at 529 4th St, the former location of Cokas Dikus, between Mendocino Ave and the Santa Rosa Mall.
The larger space allows the marketplace, which is celebrating five years in Santa Rosa this month, to offer even more goods and gifts just in time for the holiday shopping season. The store will also soon house a reuse center run by the Foundry Creative
group that will be a valued resource for teachers, artists and creative shoppers. There are also plans for art classes and a small coffee post run by the popular Criminal Bakery
The Made Local Marketplace celebrates their new space and their five-year anniversary today, Dec 8, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that's open to the public and features food, wine and a hands-on Makers Lab. 529 4th St, Santa Rosa. 5pm. The marketplace's regular hours are Mon-Fri, 10-6; Sat, 10-5 and Sun 11 to 5. 707.583.7667.
