"No Prescription Necessary!"
The concept of 'food as medicine' is rooted in our most ancient of traditions, including Greek, Indian and Chinese medicine. Good nutrition and what you put into your body is the foundation for good health. “Food is Medicine” is a term which was originally coined by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine; it was his belief that eating wholesome food is the basis for good health. Hippocrates said almost 2500 years ago “Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can heal the patient with food.”
We believe in providing our customers with the highest-quality, freshest organically grown produce possible. Local products are always fresher than their trucked in counterparts, and are therefore higher in nutritional value and are way more flavourful. We often hear from our customers that our produce tastes amazing - this is a direct result of offering super fresh produce. The fresher it is, the better it tastes and the more nutrients it contains!
