Live Local is a new non-profit organization that brings together groups and individuals who are committed to encouraging people to eat, dine, shop and experience everything our region has to offer. We’re here to help communities and independent businesses thrive and connect.
Live Local helps citizens, independent businesses and communities support independent entrepreneurs, keeps locally-owned businesses in business, and gets people working together to create healthy, vibrant communities.
We believe living local enriches our entire community, and we look for ways to help Edmontonians add local flavour, colour and energy to their lives. We work with local businesses to help them reach potential customers, so they can continue to invest in and support our local economy. We also help people understand the benefits of living local, and create networks that bring local producers, manufacturers, retailers and restaurants together.
Live Local understands that creating strong local economies, creates even stronger global economies. It’s starts at home.
Established in spring 2010, Live Local has 109 member businesses. And we’re growing. If you’re a local business that would like to join Live Local, learn more about our Live Local member benefits.
One life… drink it well.

Just two months later they’d incorporated the name, and Tania was on the hunt for premises to house their dream!

Mojo Jojo Pickles is a canning company that creates new-style urban brinned goodies and specialty preserve. Our preserves are hand packed in small batches from the best of season, lots of creativity, and some hip and cheeky fun. We like to take tradition and turn it on it’s ear. When you open a jar of Mojo’s it should always be “something your momma don’t make”. Our most popular products are our dill pickled turnip, cantelouped carrots, and beet caviar.
