“I think (consumers) are looking at local products differently because they feel that it’s a more secure supply,” said Michael Trombley, co-owner of the Meadowbrook Meat Market in Berwick, N.S.
“The other thing is, they don’t want to stand in the lineup for major supermarkets and this provides an alternative to that.”
Since the start of the pandemic, Trombley’s business has lost about 30 regular customers — including restaurants — but he’s gained about 30 new ones through online orders and curbside delivery.
