Fairfax County is launching a “Made in Fairfax” network for small-scale production businesses, such as apparel, woodworking, metalworking, breweries, and food producers.
As a first step, the county is developing a directory of small-scale producers. If you’re interested in joining the network, sign up here.
The network would help owners of these businesses build connections among one another, launch events to promote local businesses and products, create logos and branding campaigns, and provide input to the county on how to support small production businesses.
Fairfax County revised its zoning laws in 2018 to encourage small-scale production as a way to use vacant office and commercial buildings and revitalize communities.
