The Faces behind Manitoulin Marketplace

We want to highlight the people behind these products, and help you get to know them a little better, so you know who you're supporting when you purchase items from Manitoulin Marketplace! Supporting a small business means you are not only supporting a dream, you're also supporting individuals, their families, and their communities. Supporting these small businesses (the makers and growers of Manitoulin Marketplace) means you're helping to increase the sustainability of the local economy and the local food movement on Manitoulin Island and in Northern Ontario. The island is overflowing with creative, passionate, hard-working entrepreneurs and we can't wait to share their creations with you!

The Products of Manitoulin Marketplace

All of the products have been hand-picked, and the suppliers we've included create products using natural ingredients and materials, locally and sustainably sourced wherever possible. Some of these products have been custom created in collaboration with the suppliers, to ensure natural ingredients, materials, dyes, etc. are used and the products are in line with our mission. We want you to feel good about the products you're purchasing through Manitoulin Marketplace.

There are a few select products in some of the categories that are not grown or produced on Manitoulin Island, but they are so great we needed to share them with you! We try to keep them as local as possible and ensure that the companies' missions and values align with ours.
