What is the KCOM local Market?

Our region is crammed full of brilliant, small, independent businesses.

And let’s face it, the past year has been particularly difficult formany small traders faced with lockdowns and restrictions.

That's why we've created this, KCOM's local market – a free, one-stop shop showcasing the very best small businesses our region has to offer. From award-winning breweries to brilliant local delis -with everything from candlestick makers to bespoke fashion and furniture retailers in between – you'll find them all here under one virtual roof.

We created the market because we believe in buying local, supporting local businesses and backing our region. So even if you can't visit your favourite independent shop in person at the moment, shopping online is the next best way to support them. This is the place to come to find the best supplies and gifts for you and your family from dozens of unique local traders.

We're sure you'll find something for everyone here, listed under our wide range of categories and traders.

So let's get shopping! And remember every small business you buy from is supporting your local community and putting money back into our local economy that benefits the whole region.
