Buy Local.

Make a Difference.


Buy Local Baltimore is an educational and marketing campaign designed to encourage area residents to patronize local independent businesses in an effort to improve the quality of life in Baltimore neighborhoods and enhance the economic vitality of the greater Baltimore region.

By supporting locally-owned businesses in Baltimore, you are helping to preserve the character and spirit of your neighborhoods.  Need some good reasons to shop locally?  We've got plenty!  Click here.

To find out which local businesses are participating in the campaign, take a look at our online directory or just keep an eye out for the "Buy Local" logo when you're shopping.  And most importantly, when you patronize a local business, please let them know that one of the reasons you are supporting them is because they are local!

If you know of a locally-owned Baltimore business that is not currently a part of our program and should be, please let them know about us or let us know about them by emailing
