The benefits of shopping local are manifold, for the buyer and seller alike. In this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show, Amanda Small from shares the benefits of supporting local producers, growers, and makers. Check out the video above to find out what Amanda has to say or keep reading for some perks of shopping local.
Fresh, One-Of-A-Kind Goods
Small and local vendors tend to carry unique goods that you may not find anywhere else. To boot, locally-sourced food tends to be fresher, as they haven’t undergone lengthy travel and transport.
Supporting Local Vendors
Rather than support a large company, shopping local ensures you are supporting a small business and your money stays in the community. Small scale vendors tend to need the support more than their corporate counterparts.
Good For Your Health
Supporting small businesses is good for your health because it tends to be fresher and chemical and pesticide free.
