We’re working to build a thriving local economy and a unique community.

Keep Saint Petersburg Local

We do this by nurturing connections for and acting as the voice of locally-owned, independent businesses and by raising awareness of the importance of buying local. We love helping to make St. Petersburg, Florida even more awesome!

In addition to our daily advocacy, our Independent Business Alliance presents special events including our “Free Hugs Fest” and our city’s biggest “Community Celebration of All Things Local” – LOCALTOPIA.

We’ve grown to become the largest “Buy Local” organization in Florida and one of the largest in the US.
