Tastes Local is an Island-based initiative focused on supporting the rich community of creators, growers, and producers located in the Vancouver Island region. By working closely with Island Good in developing an island support platform, we host an online community marketplace used to feature local products and brands. Our marketplace gives producers and vendors a platform to drive sales to consumers focused on supporting quality local sources.
Tastes Local aims to showcase everything islanders produce, from food to artists and events, in an effort to reduce the trend of large retailers dominating markets and pulling consumers away from local businesses. We believe the island should be connected and easily accessible in a unified place for everyone to get a taste of local.
