Looking for a platform to buy local products

Anyone know if there is an e-commerce website in the GTA where small businesses have their own space to sell their products? Kind of like a local Toronto-based version of amazon?

That is, small shops can take pictures of their items and post them on the website. Shoppers go to the website, check out the stores that are on the site and shop directly. This way, shoppers can still buy from small stores that are closed for COVID or having low sales.

To be clear, I haven’t done much Research in this...
Where I am, it’s just a natural sort of thing ...
look out for your Neighbour ... and by extension the local Cos

You might want to start on GOOGLE for hints / local press etc
GOOGLE : covid shop local ____
