We expect to carry around 300 products, and about half of those will be bulk. We will also carry a full complement of dairy products, fresh bread, seasonings, oils, snack foods, and of course an incredible array of local, seasonal produce. During the first few months we will be learning from our customers, so feel free to email us if there is a product you would like to see us carry.
A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT COFFEE, CHOCOLATE AND NUTS
Cocoa and coffee beans will not grow in Canada. Many have tried and failed. Our store is committed to providing customers with Canadian grown and manufactured products, and we don’t really want to waiver on that. But we also want to get our morning coffee jolt and eat chocolate when somebody is mean to us. Therefore, we’ve decided to have a little balance on this issue. Our coffee and chocolate suppliers import whole unprocessed beans from the magical countries where they can grow delicious things, but the beans are roasted and processed in Canada. We will continue to offer locally processed coffee and chocolate until such time as someone in Canada discovers a way to grow the crop locally. (If you know someone who is doing this please contact us!).
