Our Story | Why Tastes Local?

What’s your taste in music? Your taste in wine, beer, or spirits? How about your taste in snack foods? Our taste, for all these things and more, is local.

Tastes Local is built on the premise that local goods, art, and events should be connected, highlighted and easily accessible to everyone who wants to enjoy them, while at the same time support local economies. Focusing on the Vancouver Island region at launch, Tastes Local aims to showcase everything Islanders produce, from food to artists and events.

Operationally, we are a small task force of experience people who share a passion for Vancouver Island, with the overriding goal of supporting local businesses wherever and whenever possible.
