About Us

Hello! It's nice to "meet" you.

Thank you for your interest in Living Local Marketplace. Alongside an array of artisans and small businesses from across the province, I am excited to introduce a new way to live and love local. 

My name is Alicia Doris, and I am the founder of Living Local.

Living Local showcases and supports artisans and small businesses in Peterborough & The Kawarthas, the place I proudly call “home”. It started one year ago as a passion project, an initiative to support those immediately impacted by the pandemic. Today, this gift box business is burgeoning, and its mission is more important than ever.

With the launch of Living Local Ontario, we're reaching a little further, and connecting with individuals, families, and communities across the province. There are so many exceptional entrepreneurs out there, and they have so much to offer right here at home. In turn, we're bringing you lovely, local products from my backyard and from across the province.

These offerings, and a storefront in Peterborough, have come together as Living Local Marketplace. 

Watch for an ever-evolving selection of bath and body, food and drink, jewellery and accessories, and products for babies and children, and for your home. 

I invite you to build one-of-a-kind gift boxes or simply shop our collection. And as you do, please know that the individuals and families behind each and every product, alongside me and my family, are incredibly grateful for your support. Thank you.
