Shopping Local Matters!
What is True Local?
When most of us see the word “local” we assume it was grown or crafted by someone in our community. Not everyone thinks that way – the official definition of local, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, is anything sourced within a province or within 50kms of provincial borders.
To define what is truly local we label products grown or crafted within 160kms of our store as True Local so you can be confident that you’re purchasing products that are a true reflection of your community. Supporting products produced within our province is the next best thing.
