Goods & Services for the MarketplaceEarly manufacturing in Yarmouth grew in support of the shipbuilding industry, the fishery, and the maintenance of vessels engaged in shipping. The flourishing textile industry had its origins in the ability to import inexpensive raw materials, manufacture products to equip the large number of Yarmouth-owned ships, and to transport finished products to foreign markets. Marine blacksmiths, foundries, ice-makers, wood-working plants, and sail makers developed to support the shipping industry and later evolved to serve a wider range of consumer markets.
