You don’t have to leave the house to shop local
THE coronavirus pandemic has put pressure on many small businesses across the region with new regulations on visitors and self-isolation resulting in less foot traffic at the markets.
While the Lions markets went ahead in Airlie Beach today, the changing nature of COVID-19 may throw doubt on markets over the coming weeks.
But in the age of the internet, there’s a way to shop local and support stall holders without actually having to be at the markets in person.
Take a look at where you can find your favourite market stalls online and support them through what is a difficult time for many.
