We are so excited to celebrate our 2nd year in business at the Forks Market!

It’s so amazing how fast a year can go by, especially when you are not in a hurry!  We have enjoyed each and everyday here, and especially all the wonderful people we get to meet, and who trust as a reliable source.

We really do appreciate all your support, and even more we really do care about helping you learn to live better, naturally.

We hope you have enjoyed your visits as much as we have, and we look forward to hopefully many more celebratory years to come!

I must apologize for how slow I have been in posting, but it has been such a busy (no complaints) summer!

So many new, exciting products have arrived and I must announce a few of those now!

logoNatural Factors Supplements – After many, many requests, we have finally brought in a supplement line!  We decided on Natural Factors, liking the fact that they are produced in Coquitlam, BC., as well as the extent of IMG_1367research used in creating these natural health formulas that are safe, reliable and effective.  We have started with some of their more specialty lines, but can easily order in what you may be requiring.

IMG_1393Go Natural Goat Milk Beauty Products – A line of farm fresh goats milk products creating by the Kennedy family in Sanford, MB. Did you know goats milk has the same PH level as our own skin and therefore makes it great for even the most sensitive skin.IMG_1392 Go Naturals line includes, their in demand line of lip balms, soaps, bath teas, face/body oils & more! Stop by and sample for yourself!

packagingFull Of Beans – Gluten free mixes and bean blends from Ontario.  Kim and Ben Dietrich grow coloured beans on their farm, and create their blends and mixes using Ontario bean flour as the base ingredient.

 

Three Farmers Roasted Chickpeas – The same folks who brought us Camelina Oil, twobagshave now created (in our opinion) the best tasting roasted chickpeas ever! Two flavours to try, BBQ as well as Balsamic & Cracked Pepper.

 

productsv2Squishy Snak Pak – From Saskatchewan, stay at home mom Michelle Zacharias (Mompreneur), was wanting a way to provide nutritious snacks on the go for her own children, and came up with the Squishy Snak Pak that allows self feeding for infants but enjoyed by children of all ages. (ahem, and a few adults).

Four Sigma Foods – Medicinal Mushroom Herbal Teas that offer amazing health and instant_chaga_21immunity benefits.  They have great information about the benefits of each of the mushrooms on their site.
