About Us

Our Mission

2020 sucked right? Here at Loco Markets we witnessed the devastation of our local high street first hand and decided to do something about it. We thought long and hard about the trend towards online shopping while acutely aware of the importance of our high street stores. So what was the solution?

Simple.

If you can’t beat em, join em!

We decided to launch an online platform specifically designed to support our local community. Anything you purchase on Loco Markets is guaranteed to be from a local shop providing high quality and competitively priced products. Additionally every 6 months we will be donating a percentage of our profits to locally relevant charities helping to improve your communities.

How cool is that?

Not only is it better for our local businesses but it’s also better for the planet too! Why ship from China when you can get it delivered from a shop two streets way. You’ll be cutting emissions and getting awesome stuff – all while giving your local community a massive hug!

Now put your superhero cape on and go shop loco!

A Few Words About

The "A Team"

Loco Markets was started by Dave Brown, a self confessed geek (Star Wars – not Trek) and Edinburgh native of 15 years. He was saddened by the sudden and brutal demise of his favourite local shops and decided to do something about it.

Cue the music!
