Now that we know which companies offer garden carts made in the USA let’s look at each one in a little more detail.
Mighty Max Cart
Mighty Max Cart or MMC for short is a well-known company that produces quality garden carts. It was founded in 1994. However, for a while, it manufactured its garden carts overseas. It wasn’t until 2010 that the company transferred its manufacturing from overseas back to the US.
Today, MMC manufactures its garden carts at its company facility in Jacksonville, Texas. The company is very proud of the fact that it now manufactures its products in the USA. And from what I understand, it looks like Mighty Max Cart will continue to produce its garden carts in America for the foreseeable future.
When it comes to carts, the folks at MMC are experts. The company has carts for fishing, for the beach, and of course, gardens. Since moving its production to the US, MMC has received lots of excellent reviews for its product quality. With the company now manufacturing all of its carts in one place, the owners can keep a close eye on production to ensure pure quality.
Here are some links to MMC’s carts that are suitable for use in the garden.

As for its manufacturing location, Initially, I couldn’t find all that much on its website. However, after hopping over to its official Amazon store, I found that its carts are proudly made at a facility in Jefferson, Indiana.
