• Local Source’s 10th Anniversary

    Guys! This is our very first actual blog post, and what better reason to be writing it than for our 10th anniversary!

    What a great journey the past ten years have been. This eventful decade has seen us go from Terrior Local Source Catering, to opening the North End food market that has been well received in this vibrant neighbourhood, and then opening our organic bakery. In August of last year we expanded by moving the market to it’s new location at 2530 Agricola Street. We love having the extra space that is now available to provide you with a larger variety of locally grown produce and goods, not to mention the unique combination of continuous energy from patrons and staff offers a great vibe (especially attached to our new sister business Lion & Bright Cafe Bar).

    LocalSourceMarketThank you for showing your support of the eat local movement, for contributing to the growth of our local economy and the livelihoods of our hardworking farmers and producers. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the valued support of our customers, who value fresh, healthy, local produce; our farmers, producers and suppliers as well as our amazing staff.

    To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we are planning an exciting weekend to celebrate local, healthy, real food and those who work so hard each and every day to grow it for us!
