Bath is bringing local food to your doorstep.

New measures in place to tackle the spread of COVID-19 mean that leaving your house should be limited to buying essential items, food, medicine or to exercise. Many are now turning to online shopping, leading to delivery slots disappearing faster than ever. With supermarkets struggling to meet the changing customer demands, local independent retailers in Bath have got the answers.

The local delivery company Good Sixty are offering fresh produce from independent retailers in Bath direct to customers’ doors. Working as an online marketplace, Good Sixty works by first selecting your area, then begin browsing local artisans and independent shops from around the UK. The online retailer enables you to choose products from multiple traders and checkout in one simple transaction – all without leaving the house. With an eye on their green credentials too, orders are then delivered straight to your door by eco bikes or by post.

In the current climate, companies like Good Sixty can offer those who are unable to get to the shops a choice, by providing a safe and non-contact service during the pandemic. Stay safe at home by selecting a time that works for you and wait for your food to be delivered. Treat yourself to independent gins, wines and craft beers all delivered guilt-free and reducing carbon emissions. You can also find your favourite cuts from butchers, who source the highest quality and ethically produced meat for a Sunday roast at home.

Bath locals aren’t the only lucky ones to benefit from Good Sixty, those who live in Borough and Bristol are also able to take advantage of this great service.

Online marketplaces are also helping to create well-connected communities by encouraging people to support their local producers and retailers. In turn, local people start to reengage with their high street and help to keep high streets independent and healthy.

You can keep yourself healthy whilst making your high-street heroes happy!
