Shop local for the holidays

Show your love of local businesses

It has been nearly two years since the COVID-19 pandemic entered our communities, and small businesses are still coping with disruptions it has caused.

As we prepare for another unusual holiday season, it’s important to remember how much our support means to local businesses and the communities they serve.

Whether you do most of your shopping online or in brick-and-mortar stores, please remember to #clicklocal, #shoplocal and #eatlocal. Your support makes all the difference.

Find a holiday market near you

There are a number of holiday markets and winter farmers markets taking place in villages and towns across the North Country. Find locally made gifts, like goat milk soaps by Berube Botanicals in Vermontville, at a craft fair or farmers market near you.

Is your community hosting a holiday shopping event this year? Please send details to Lauren Richard at [email protected], and we’ll add it to our growing list.
