Made in Queens

MiQ (formerly Made in Queens) is a curated collection of locally made, quality products that are sold online, in select locations, and at pop-up shops.

MiQ‘s mission is to sell small batch, originally manufactured local products. The goal is to promote local makers and manufacturers, share their stories, and provide an opportunity for new and existing local businesses to grow and flourish.

Made in NYC

Made in NYC is here for New Yorkers. Launched by the Pratt Center for Community Development, MINYC helps manufacturers and entrepreneurs tell their story to provide a sense of community — reminding small businesses that they are not alone.
