While Michigan is unlikely to return to its heyday as a manufacturing powerhouse anytime soon, that doesn’t mean we don’t make stuff here anymore. We do.

In our annual Made in Michigan issue, we like to take a look at what Great Lakes State makers are up to, and as usual there’s a lot going on. There are plenty of artists and designers who are creating everything from fine art to fun and funky fashion pieces and more. Our dining scene is continuing to heat up thanks, in part, to Michigan-made hot sauces. We’ve got a new recreational marijuana industry that’s set to make Michigan the cannabis capital of the Midwest. There are even some new developments in the automotive realm, with cars set to soon once again roll off an assembly line in the Motor City. And here are 10 great products made in Michigan or made by companies headquartered here. So flip through these pages and enjoy the bounty of creativity to be found in Michigan.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Metro Times has been keeping Detroit informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources. A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.
