Why read Make It Minnesota?

Passion for community

We care deeply about making, supporting, and enriching community. Whether through food, craft, storytelling, or meaningful partnerships, we aim to connect with our communities in worthwhile ways. 

Free of traditional advertising

Traditional, impersonal advertising doesn’t align with our values, nor with the values of our readers. The display ads of yesteryear no longer have the power they once did, rather, today’s magazine readers yearn for quality content.

Real people, real stories

As we feature makers, small businesses, and innovators from every region of Minnesota, we hope to uncover the hidden cities, talented makers, and beautiful communities in every corner of our Northern state. We are confident that every issue will offer a beautiful amount of depth, vision, as well as the drive to support local businesses.

The power of print

We want our magazine to feel special. We have the opportunity to offer a slow, thoughtful reading experience, so why not make it as unique as possible?

Read it (much) later

Paper is patient. Our stories are timeless. Collect our issues now and enjoy them whenever you get a chance. 

Proudly indie

Make It Minnesota is an independent publication made with a passion for Northern craft, community, and connecting to this place. We’re funded by our fantastic Patrons, subscribers, and local business and event partnerships.
