To Market, To Market
We love the St. Norbert Farmers Market. Since 2003 we’ve been going there almost every Saturday from May through October. Hard to believe that it’s been that long already. In the beginning, we were selling only whole grain breads and other related baking, but as we gained experience and grew our customer base, we realized that we were missing a large segment of the population – the people wanting items without gluten. So we began experimenting with seeds to see what we could come up with. One of those things was flax crackers. And the other one of those things was hemp snackers. And although they definitely appeal to people who are choosing to go gluten-free, we’ve found that they appeal to an even broader range of people than we’d ever imagined.
As Rawnata continues to grow, we realize that we will soon have to bring our baking chapter to a close – Rawnata snacks are currently in close to 170 stores, and that number continues to grow by the week! We are excited…and a little scared!
LCG Foods Distribution and Deluca’s Specialty Foods have done a great job of getting our healthy snacks across Canada, and now Mark from West 10th Sales and Trade Marketing has begun working with us to bring Rawnata to even more people.
If you come by the St. Norbert Farmers Market, you’ll see our new “transitional” booth format – wholegrain baking on one side, Rawnata on the other. All locally made with purposeful ingredients.
We’ll be doing lots of product sampling this Market season, so make sure you stop by to see us and to have a taste of our delicious Flax Crackers and Hemp Snackers while you’re at it! We love meeting each and every one of you – and we want to continue providing you with top quality nutritious food!
Have a RAWKIN’ AWESOME summer! ~ Natalie
