Why shop local?
One of the best things you can do in your community is to shop locally, such as in your local market – here’s why!
Better for the environment
Many of us make climate-conscious decisions when shopping. Eating food that has flown across the world in plastic packaging is unsustainable. Shopping with local butchers, bakers, farm shops, greengrocers or at markets has a short field-to-fork distance, which is much better for the climate and supports local farmers.
Supports local economy
Buying from a local business, whether a shop, market stall or charity shop, supports them more than you might imagine - for every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business, 63p stays in the local economy!
Small local businesses are the largest employers nationally – supporting local businesses supports local jobs.
Better deals and advice
Our local shopkeepers and traders are also experts! You will find great deals and quality products and get advice on whatever you buy. You may get more for your money and reliability on returns, repairs and support.
