Virtual market, Better Sourced Locally, is brimming with ideas for making this Easter Bank Holiday that little bit special this year.


With the promise of a gradual lift of lockdown restrictions that have shaped our lives for the last 12 months, bringing us one step closer to our loved ones; let’s look forward to a happy Easter and the thoughts of mixing with a few more of our nearest and dearest during the bank holiday. 


Why not prepare a graze picnic for the garden or at the park? Be inspired by a range of chutneys and preserves carefully crafted by local specialist, Jilly’s Home Made Preserves, made to order and delivered personally; what’s not to like? 


For special chocolate treats, it’s a must to check out the Cocoa Chocolatier & Bakehouse, offering handmade chocolates, cakes and bakes as well as the famous “gooey brownies”, cookie sandwiches, artisan chocolates.


Why not support our local independent businesses and discover the delights they have 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.
