As a member of the Lake Martin community, we know how important it is to support our small businesses.

We know that more and more small businesses here in Lake Martin are being affected and to continue to support them as much as we can, we’ve compiled a list of 6 local businesses that you can support from home. We know there are way more than 6 Lake Martin businesses that deserve our support. Maybe we can work through more of these later, but here are 6 for now:

1. The Burritos Corner Mexican Grill

How You Can Help: Order takeout! 

(256) 307-1887

This spot has been up and rolling for months but lots of Lake Martin fans still don't know about this place! They are at the corner of highways 49 & 50 (in the old Louie's space) & serve great Tex/Mex.

2. Lake Martin Trading Company at Holiday Shores

How You Can Help: Shop local!

So much more than a convenience store. They are my go-to east side spot because... listen to this lineup: non-ethanol gas quality, beer & wine (I'm a confessing IPA snob), Blue Bell Ice Cream, fishing tackle, hot pizza and more. Plus nice, neighborly owners & staff.

3. Oskar's

How You Can Help: Order takeout!

Oskar's is consistently good & have been for years due to their stable staff, great menu, and owners that are always there. They've already set up their pick up lanes and payment systems. You could eat your way through their menu for a month and not have to repeat. Oskar's is a gem!

4. On Site Boat Care

How You Can Help: Use local services!


They come to you and prep your boat. They do the cleaning and prep work for local boat dealers, so they really know how to make your boat shine. On Site will also create, fit, and install a custom bimini top or boat cover. I have had multiple folks tell me independently how satisfied they were with On Site's work.

5. Lake Martin Pizza

How You Can Help: Order delivery or takeout!

Confession- we've already visited them for curbside pickup. We went for our family's regular order and they were as good as always. By the way, LM Pizza has just about finished construction on their outside patio. It's not for use now, but post-corona they will have live music available.

6. Tristan "the tree guy"

How You Can Help: Use local vendors!

(256) 827-9148

Tristan Albertson does a great job with tree removal. He is licensed and insured and travels all over the Lake Martin area. Trees are his specialty but he also has a landscaping crew that can tackle just about anything. So if your spring cleaning list includes trimming or removing trees, or some landscaping projects, give Tristan a holler!
