Kawartha Local Marketplace – Ontario, Canada

Badge of Awesome Communities invites you to share your favourite things to see and do in cool destinations around the world. We caught up with the folks from Kawartha Local Marketplace — one of our featured attractions from the Peterborough & the Kawarthas, Ontario area — to learn about what they have to offer.

What makes Kawartha Local Marketplace awesome?

Kawartha Local Marketplace: Kawartha Local Marketplace is a completely unique gift boutique and emporium.  As a social enterprise, our experiment in community-based retail has at its core one simple idea: a consumer product inventory created exclusively by artisans, producers and small scale manufacturers in the immediate area.

From culinary products, to giftware, to health & beauty products and artisan works, everything is created in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. We work hard to curate and share a wide array of both everyday and special occasion products that enable our customers’ 50-kilometre lifestyle.
