Lakelander Made Submissions
In recent years, Lakeland has welcomed some incredible homegrown businesses that chose this city as their base and inspiration. These businesses enlarge our identity as a community, add to our flavor and change the way we eat, shop, work and live as a city. To celebrate the crafted goods these entrepreneurs create, The Lakelander proudly presents its second year of Lakelander Made.
In a very special edition of The Lakelander, these products will be highlighted and celebrated.
