PA WILDS MAKERS MARKET
The PA Wilds Makers Market launched in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A brainchild of WCO members, the annual event takes place online at ShopThePAWilds.com and allows people to easily find PA Wilds products, services and experiences safely at home.
OUR SHARED OPPORTUNITYWe know there is power in a place-based brand -- and the PA Wilds is ours. The PA Wilds brand is rooted in our region’s rural maker culture, public lands and conservation legacy, and it seeks to celebrate and nurture our natural wonders by connecting people with nature. Our values uplift charm, not chain. We steward our places -- the communities and wild spaces around us, and this attracts visitors and residents, ultimately creating lasting economic benefits in our rural region.
The outdoor recreation economy is a viable industry, generating $887 billion annually in the United States. In the PA Wilds, tourism is a $1.8 billion industry — and that number continues to grow. Let’s continue to find ways to increase our share of the tourism economy.
