Made in Arlington is an initiative of Arlington Economic Development that supports local artisans and makers and bolsters the creative economy. Arlington is home to a growing number of creative businesses that include chocolate makers, jewelers, bakers, soap makers, ceramic artists, a custom furniture maker and more. Through pop-up shops, social media and publications, Arlington shines a spotlight on these unique small businesses.
