Think Local Gifting This Year
November 2021 / By: Diana
Concerned about supply chain issues this year? This season try local gifting.
As Martha Barber, the creator of the most delicious shortbread and cookies at Martha’s Delectables, recently said at the Island Good – Recipes for Success’ session at the ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit, “consumers can feel good about purchasing our products, knowing it’s a local product through Island Good.”
The Island Good brand and website is a simple, headache-free way to source Island Good products and retailers. Make your shopping easy-peasy and order an Island Good Gift Box — a ‘taste of Vancouver Island’ shipped anywhere in the world.
Or if you feel a need to get out and about, shop for the foodies in your life by visiting the following Island Good food retailers, 49th Parallel Grocery, Country Grocer, Crabby Bob’s Seafood, Cure Meat and Cheese, Discovery Foods, Fairway Market, Farm Table Inn Farm Store, French Creek Seafood, Glenora Farm Store and Cafe, Healthyway Natural Foods, Lifestyle Markets, L’il Market at Page’s Resort, Peppers Food Store, Quality Foods, Smith & Lee Butcher, Springford Farm, The Market Stores and Tru Value Foods, look for the Island Good brand and put together a basket of scrumptious Island Good nourishment.
As well, you can give the gift an Island Good dining experience. 10 Acres Restaurant Group, Big Wheel Burger, City Centre Grill, Eve Olive, Farm Table Inn, House of Boateng, The AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar and Ocean 7 restaurant at the Kingfisher, RIVA Sidney, Campbell River Golf Country Club, and Morningstar Golf Club offer Island Good food and beverage in their lounge and/or restaurants.
Provide some cheer with some amazing Island Good beverages.
