Michigan Local Gift Guide out

MARQUETTE — Michiganders looking for local options online can use Taste the Local Difference’s Michigan Local Gift Guide to explore more than 50 unique items from artisans, from bourbon barrel aged honey to curated gift baskets.

“Local food businesses made huge investments in e-commerce throughout the pandemic to make online shopping for local gifts a reality,” said Tricia Phelps, CEO of Taste the Local Difference, in a news release.

“We ship our online orders in 24-48 hours of receiving them,” said chef Maria Leggett of Grand Traverse Sauce Company in a news release.

“With talk of shipping services inundated with packages again this year and being short-handed, we always recommend to order gifts early, since we do not know what lead times for services will be especially closer to Christmas.”

From spicy hot sauces from Grand Traverse Sauce Company to sweet candies from Mel’s Toffee, many Michigan made products can be found in Taste the Local Difference’s gift guide at michiganlocalgiftguide.com. For those who don’t want to risk a late arrival, the Gifts from the Heart category highlights Michigan organizations to donate to that are making tangible impacts to the local food system.
