THE EXCHANGE DISTRICT HAS ITS OWN GROCERY STORE THANKS TO THE FOLKS

Winnipeggers who live in the Exchange District are getting an early Christmas present this year – a neighbourhood grocery store and deli.

In keeping with the collective’s commitment to providing sustainable, socially responsible alternatives, the products sold are organic, fairly traded and sourced locally as much as possible. In the summer, for example, purchases fresh vegetables from the Landless Farmers Collective, a small group that grows organic produce on under-used urban land (this past summer, it farmed a plot in front of the Pan Am Pool on Grant Avenue) and delivers it via bicycle.

And yes, everything is vegan, too – including the assortment of sauces and take-away options available from the in-store deli.
