#ClickLocal: Support local, shop online at the same time

As small, local businesses continue to look for new ways to reach customers, more  e-commerce opportunities are coming to fruition. Keep engaged in your community with the #ClickLocal effort and check out the following endeavors, provided by Adirondack North Country Association:

Adirondack Buyer Days: ANCA is sharing a catalog of handmade gifts from its annual Buyer Days show (which didn’t take place this year due to COVID-19). The catalogue features artisans from around the region (such as Adirondack Peach, shown here), making a range of products such as jewelry, cards, soap, candles and chocolate. Browse the online catalogue here and support regional artists.

The Hub Online Market: The Hub on the Hill’s new online ordering system offers local food and products with the added convenience of home delivery, within 100 miles of its location in Essex. (Place orders by Monday and then choose a delivery day.) The project was made in collaboration with ANCA and received support from the Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts fund, and Well Fed Essex. If you are a food producer located in the Champlain Valley/Adirondacks, you are welcome to apply.

Shop Where I Live St. Lawrence County: Check out the St. Lawrence Chamber of Commerce’s new online platform which allows you to purchase directly from St. Lawrence County businesses.
