The Blue Ridge Web Market was originally funded by a grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission and the Governor's Connect
NC program. Matching funds and support were provided by Advantage West, Land of Sky
Regional Council, Madison County, HandMade in America, and the Mountain Microenterprise
The web market is hosted and operated by the Mountain Area Information
Network (MAIN), the nonprofit community network serving 12 counties in western North
Carolina. The Blue Ridge Web Market is a pilot economic development project for the
counties of Madison, Buncombe, Henderson and Transylvania.
Please visit the BRWM frequently, as we continue to add new small
businesses and microenterprises representing the best in grassroots products and services
from the mountains of western North Carolina.
