Look out for the Wight Marque. It means it’s lovely and local.
We’re lucky enough to have easy access to the freshest food and gourmet delights, produced right on our doorstep. Switch up your Christmas shopping and try something local this year – for gorgeous gifts or to treat yourself.
To make things easy the Wight Marque scheme helps you find lovely, local produce in your favourite shops. When you see the logo, it tells you that the food and drink is high quality and made, grown or manufactured on the Isle of Wight. It’s been lovingly made or tended by farmers, chefs and rural businesses with a passion for local produce. All products and businesses using the Marque are strictly audited to ensure that only genuine Isle of Wight products are accredited.
When a restaurant displays the Wight Marque symbol, it means they are genuinely committed to creating menus using local and seasonal ingredients. For a shop, the Marque is a sign that they are supporting local food businesses by stocking a range of Wight Marque accredited stock.
If you want a good reason to shop locally then here are eight…
1. Supporting the high street helps us all
63p of every £1 spent in an independent shop goes back into the local economy.
2. It’s good for jobs
You’ll be helping people to keep their jobs and hopefully create more. Having a healthy economy makes the Island a wonderful place to live and work – and more tourists will want to visit us too.
3. You’ll get great deals
Your local shops have some great deals that can’t be found online – plus regulars are often rewarded with loyalty schemes.
4. It’s a safe way to shop
Shops across the Island are Covid-safe, with customer limits, plastic partitioning and lashings of hand sanitiser.
5. You’re supporting the community
Our local businesses generate revenue to support the Council services that we all use, such as libraries, parks and roads.
6. You’ll be spoilt for choice
You can buy something special that’s made with love. Small businesses often stock items which are made locally and aren’t available anywhere else.
7. It’s a friendly experience
Sometimes there’s nothing like a friendly face and a bit of a chat, particularly during these difficult times. Also small businesses are run by people who want you to have a great experience – and that means that they’ll share their expertise and go ‘the extra mile’ for you.
8. You’ll be doing your bit for the planet
Local shops often use local suppliers – and shoppers can walk or cycle to get their goodies. This means that we’re all doing our bit to reduce air pollution and traffic and improve the quality of the Island’s high streets.
