We recently celebrated 10 years in business, hence the party hats in our group photo! Co-founders Seth and Jessie started this business in July 2011, as table vendors at the Seaport Farmers' Market on weekends. Our first products were dehydrated kale chips, and raw granola bars. Within a year we had grown our product selection, and moved into a permanent storefront kitchen at the farmers' market, open 7 days a week, with the addition of fresh meals, salads and smoothies on the menu.
In February 2019 we opened the doors at our current location in the North End, as a full service vegan restaurant. Everything was going so well... and then in March 2020 the pandemic hit, and a long year of lockdowns put everything on hold. We decided we needed to adapt our business model, in order to brave the pandemic and meet the changing needs of our customers.
So, things look a little different around here now! We transformed our restaurant into Halifax’s first plant-based grocery market. You can still order meals from the menu, though it's mostly take-out as seating is limited. What used to be our dining room is now a market filled with shelves of groceries, fresh produce, local coffee and bread, body care, supplements, natural cleaning supplies and more. We've got all the essentials, plus lots of vegan treats and specialty items that are hard to find elsewhere.
We owe our success to our hardworking staff team, and our wonderful customers who have stuck with us over the past decade while we grew, made mistakes, learned and evolved. We can't wait to see what the future holds! Join our community by following us on Facebook and Instagram. We'd love to connect with you.
