Buy Local Martha's Vineyard is an alliance of local Island  businesses, organizations and residents with a mission to grow, support and maintain a strong and vibrant Island economy. 
The program encourages and provides opportunities for entrepreneurs and incentives and discounts to year-round Island residents when they buy from participating Buy Local businesses instead of national and global chains.


Why We're Here

The year-round working population of Martha's Vineyard earns 30% less on average than other residents of the state while keeping up with a cost of living that is 60%  higher than average.
