We encourage people to buy and sell in their local area and our mission is “Connecting local makers and crafters with buyers in a secure and familiar online community. We champion locally made items.”

There are lots of craft marketplaces on the web. But we are different. Here is what our users have said:

Made local is a very interesting concept and the site looks great. The local angle is a genuine point of difference and I think it's something customers will really value.

It seems to be really user friendly so far and well set up. You’ve clearly put a lot of thought into the user journey.

I saw all the updates and it was amazing! Worked like a dream! I could add all my colour variations and it just made me so happy!

madelocal.app was itself created and developed by a local start-up company based in north east Wales. With a belief that shopping locally is the key to building better communities and a stronger economy, the idea was born for a platform.

madelocal.app is registered as a Limited company in the UK. It is run by a team of two who built it from scratch.
