The first brick and mortar location from SPUD (Vancouver's premiere organic home grocery delivery service) specializing in organic, local, small-batch goods. Close relationships with BC farmers mean the produce at this mini-grocery shop / cafe / eatery is reminiscent of the fruits and veg one might find at the Vancouver Farmers Markets. Think rare dirt-covered mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes and fresh turmeric. From the counter, grab meals to go, fresh baking or a coffee made with Agro Roasters beans.
