Become a member and help us make this site a success by spreading the word! Launched March 2017, it will take some time to build up the directory. But as more vendors and producers list their products on the website, it will become more and more useful to consumers across North America.
The best part is that by supporting the growth of makers, growers and localized shopping, we are reducing impact on the environment, strengthening local economies, and supporting communities!
We apologize, but services do not qualify to be listed on 100 Mile Living website.
Items do not have to be handmade but ideally they are produced and sold in the same general area.
If you are a business that sells or supports the sale of locally made or grown products, we would love to advertise your business on our site (see Paid Advertising).
Should you have any questions about the website, please contact us.
