Jake’s Market & Deli has been a Local First Alliance member since 2010. Aside from offering fresh made Deli sandwiches, baked goods, and ice cold soda or beer (check out the innovative pick-your-own six pack), Jake’s Market provides a local business establishment that is committed to our region. In 2011, Jake’s Market was awarded the Rotary Club of Lebanon, New Hampshire’s annual Ethics Award for their dignified and respectful treatment of their employees and patrons. Jake’s Market is also reinvesting in our community through charitable contributions and active volunteerism in programs such as Meals on Wheels. Jake’s Market and other locally based businesses care about our region because they have a vested interest in seeing it thrive. When you choose to patronize a Local First Alliance business, you are perpetuating a thriving local economy and strengthening our Upper Valley. So, the next time you run out for some lunch meat or weekend refreshments think about where that money goes. How much of it stays here? With a Local First Alliance business like Jake’s Market & Deli, you know it will stay hard at work in the communities we call home.
