Go shopping for a diverse range of quality products which have been made, grown or produced here in North Somerset from the comfort of your own home.
The Made in North Somerset Marketplace is a new online platform for buying high-quality goods, whether fresh bread, cheese, chocolate, eggs, beer, cider or gin, or unique arts and crafts.
It has been developed by North Somerset Council and builds on the Made in North Somerset business network and annual festival which has run for the last eight years.
Local producers and makers have been impacted by the effects of the global pandemic because many of the outlets for their products, such as restaurants, cafes, galleries and markets, were closed for many months.
Instead, this new virtual marketplace gives them a collective platform to sell their wares directly, offering a delivery or click and collect service.
Buying from the site means you will be helping to support these businesses and their employees, keeping money in the local economy and reducing food miles.
The council is also working with Business Improvement Districts, the Chamber of Commerce, and town councils to launch Virtual High Streets.
Nailsea is the first to launch its Virtual High Street, with others for Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon and Portishead launching in the coming weeks.
