Why you need to be here!
WHAT IT IS— The Virtual Market offers locals (who want to shop) and visitors (who want to plan) beautiful virtual listings that we call “stalls”. Our vendors represent the great talent of the County from producers to growers, to makers to retailers, artists to trades, services to workshops to events—it’s a one stop shop.
HOW THEY WORK— Visitors browse the market or search for specific things then add their favourite stalls to their personal “Experience List.” And you can see how many people have added your stall to their X List. When these visitors are ready to purchase or book, the stalls all link to vendors’ currently used purchase, booking, or order portal.
WHY THEY WORK— The Virtual Market lets visitors and locals know what experiences are available now, via delivery or safe in-person access, as well as what’s coming and what they can plan for and look forward to. And it’s not only COVID and regulation-proof, it’s also low season proof!
WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE MY STALL? Of course you do! You need to promote your sales or new products or update photos or content. No problem. Our user access form is live and you can swap out the content by signing in and following the simple instructions. Or if you prefer to send us the deets, we can do it for you for an admin fee of $75/session.

WHAT IT IS— The Live+Stay Market is made up of Real Estate Listings (this section also includes private stalls for salespeople, realtors, real estate brokerages and developers as well as peripheral property and real estate businesses, like, mortgage brokers, real estate lawyers, landscapers, photographers, trades, movers and other service providers; STAy Stalls (All the hotels, motels, bnbs, inns, and other short term accommodations in the County); and finally, Long Term Rental Listings (we are aiming to give these away to help support and promote long term renting in PEC.)
HOW THEY WORK— LIFE AU LAIT Magazine is a real deal capture of the awesomeness of life in Prince Edward County. It shows it as it is, not glossy or over-hyped. The visitors and locals who read the magazine are pre-qualified for loving this place, they’re ready to buy forever or at least, spend their vacation time here. It just makes sense to marry real estate listings and our STAy Stalls to the magazine in our Live+Stay Market!

Live & Coming Soon...
INCLUSION IN LIFE AU LAIT ROUNDUPS— We always have some great stories on the go, but our roundups get a lot of attention. It just makes sense to dive into cool topics that are based on our market’s own vendors! We’ll constantly be looking at your stalls and listings to come up with awesome top 5 stories that feature your business, so the sooner you’re in there, the sooner I’ll be brainstorming about how to promote you in a theme!
GREAT SEARCH OPTIONS— Right now, we have category listings and an in-market or listing or stall specific search to help guide people towards your stall or listing in the various markets. Between tags and stall content, if a user searches ‘coffee’ and you have or sell or make coffee at your business or STA, you’re going to come up in the list. If they search ‘Bloomfield’ and that’s where your business or listing is, you’ll come up on that list too. These search functions are designed to make sure our visitors can find you everywhere!
PEC GUIDES— This is one of the top tabs on lifeaulait.com and users can view the content by neighbourhood or the type of visit they’re planning, from couples trips to girls’ getaways, family friendly visits to County weddings, there’s even a winery option—and your stall or listing will always be linked to whichever guides are relevant to it!
EXPERIENCE LISTS— This one is our personal baby. It looks like a button on each stall that says [+ experience] and each time a user clicks on it, your stall or listing will be added to their personal “Experience List” and they can create their own vacay or shopping planners for when they come to the County. It also shows how many times your added to lists, indicating to other users, how popular your experience is in our markets. This is also good feedback for how you curate your stall or listing.
WE CAN HELP WITH YOUR CONTENT— We get that you’re busy and you might not have time or the wherewithal to update your content, take photographs or write your listing or story. We can help. Email us for more details at [email protected]
