Our Story

Where we came from

Where we are

This is what we've cultivated so far

Where we're going

If there's one thing that life keeps reminding us it's that it goes on. We want to keep it simple.

We want to serve Vancouver accessibility to delicious food. Eating is one of the greatest pleasures you can experience and we want everyone to have a chance to eat delicious auspicious food. Whether that's selling ingredients at The August Market and augustmarket.ca or giving food to Vancouver Food Runners to share with anyone in the city who needs it. We would love to be able to say one day that everyone in Vancouver always has enough food to fill their belly. Enough is as good as a feast.

We want our staff to feel rich. We want them to be paid living wages that allow them to make decisions based on what feels right to their spirit and not what feels possible in regards to their bank account.

We want our customers to trust us enough to talk to us when we can serve them better and share their gratitude when we've served them well.

We want farmers, vendors, delivery drivers, service professionals and others we work with to feel comfortable whenever they arrive here because their time is respected.

We want to serve Vancouver as well as can be. When things get too big the little magic is scared off. And we're big believers that it's the little things in life that make the biggest differences, that small groups of people working together is the most compelling way to live a beautiful life.
