Shopping local should always be encouraged, but this year, it's essential. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on small businesses, local restaurants, bars, breweries and shops need your support more than ever. Wondering how you can help? Grab your holiday gifts, provisions, treats and more for your loved ones (or yourself) from a local business for a gift you can truly feel good about giving. Here are a few local food-and-drink gifts we're adding to our list this year.
