By bringing the beloved, traditional “living above the store” model – which supported families, inspired entrepreneurship, and created sustainable communities for decades – into the digital age, Makerhoods integrates affordable living, space for light manufacturing, the creative explosion of the “maker movement,” business support, and a shared digital platform in support of a completely new paradigm to catalyze economic development.
Newark Makerhoods is the first Makerhoods project set to be complete by late 2021. Makerhoods not only provides affordable space for Makers to grow their business, it also creates opportunities, access to markets, and business support. Makers who sell on Makerhoods Market receive training, business coaching, resources, and join a supportive community of like-minded Makers. You can support our Makers directly by making a purchase on our market.
