It's SFMade Week, a week-long celebration of the brands that choose to make their products right here in SF. It's no easy task to produce locally: our city has the highest minimum wage in the country (at $10.55 an hour) and limited space. This week's events offer the opportunity to discover these undaunted manufacturers through factory tours, pop-up shops, demos, and sales. There's also the annual fundraiser event Ramp It Up! this Wednesday, May 7, from 6 to 9pm at the SFDC. Tickets are $25 and VIP entry is $125. All proceeds from the event and its silent auction will go toward SFMade's programs that help build a vibrant manufacturing sector in SF.
