Locavore: Retailers’ Gift Guide

Locavore: Retailers’ Gift Guide


Happy 2020 Retailer’s Guide. Given the absolute strain on all our local retailers, we decided to focus on hearing directly from our retailers. These Retailers’ Picks are hand-selected ideas for you, from the local moms and pops that run our local shops. Listen to them. We’ve also included a list of web stores where you can order online and have them delivered, instead of going to a massive web portal to enrich people who are already rich.

The Louisville store has numerous marijuana products, including various strains, vapes, accessories, and topicals. Gifting edibles has emerged as an especially popular option for a cozy holiday season. Many people enjoy putting the edibles in the stockings, and you can also have fun by burying the edibles beneath a pile of relatively boring items so your loved one has to dig through the entire stocking. While Starbuds has many edibles, their fruity Muncheez Gummies and Starbuds Pebble Bites would be a great way to bring in the holidaze feel!
