INSPIRED BY NUTRITIOUS FOOD AND A LOVE OF COMMUNITY
A love of good food (and wine!) is what first brought us together. Our early days consisted of late-night pasta making sessions and travels to culinary destinations. We even changed our wedding date to get the caterer we wanted.
On a fateful trip to Napa, California over 10 years ago, we fell in love with a small local grocery store. We ate incredible sandwiches at their outdoor picnic table and were charmed by the friendly, knowledgeable staff and nutritious selection. We decided that we wanted to replicate the experience back home in Canada – a healthy grocer without any of the pretension. We have lived in Tofino now since 2015, and with two young children alongside us, access to healthy food has never been more important to us.
I spend all my free time in the kitchen – baking, canning, fermenting, you name it! I have a weakness for cookbooks, frivolous culinary appliances, and a passion for preparing easy, delicious meals for my family with as many whole ingredients as possible. We believe in supporting local makers, farms and bakers; in Fairtrade, pesticide and cruelty-free food. Most of all, we believe in nourishing the West Coast. Gaia Grocery has been our family’s dream for many years, and I look forward to sharing my passion for good food with the community!
