A gorgeous Saturday for DandyFest at Dandelion Foods in Almonte.
We joined several local producers and wellness partners to showcase the goods and products available within the store. Now in its 5th year, DandyFest is an annual event that allows customers and residents to meet the makers, ask questions, and "try-before-you-buy" (who doesn't love free samples!!?).
The event was also a great way for us to connect with local businesses and get to know them on a personal level. At the event this year were Ilias and Sons, Alpenblick Farm, Bee Savvy Honey, Love My Buns, Biemond Upper Canada Creamery, Fluid Solar Roasted Coffee, Sweet Cheeks Kitchen, Neal Brothers, VoxxLife, Natural Wisdom, Almonte Fitness Centre, PureLab Vitamins, AOR Health, Progressive, Lorna Vanderhaeghe, Hummingbird Chocolate, Kricklewood Farm, live music, and a BBQ featuring Seed to Sausage and Gusta Foods.
We enjoyed serving up samples of Strawberry Mint and Mango Lassi to both kombucha veterans and newbies and had a few surprise visits from familiar faces. We were pretty excited to debut our new jockey box which will make dispensing kombucha at events much easier!
Thanks to everyone at Dandelion Foods for putting on a great event and always supporting local!
We're so excited to have four flavours in Dandelion Foods!!
A one-stop shop for all your organic, local, natural foods and health products, Dandelion Foods is a beautiful health food store located in Almonte, Ontario.
Open 7 days a week, the store features a large assortment of supplements, vitamins, beauty and health care products, fresh produce, bulk foods, freezer foods, locally made items, grab-and-go meals, and specialty products to accommodate any diet or food allergy.
The selection and arrangement of the store is just as open and welcoming as the staff. Highly knowledgeable and friendly, the team at Dandelion Foods will great you with a smile and have you feeling like you've known them for years.
The perfect opportunity to meet the staff and local farmers and makers is coming up on June 16, as the store celebrates their 5th year of DandyFest, a day of sampling and learning about the fantastic benefits of the featured local products. Prizes, live music, a BBQ, live animal area and 10% off in store will be sure to create lots of buzz around town from 10am until 2pm.
We're so grateful to be in Dandelion Foods, especially alongside our friends at Artizen Kombucha, who have such a huge following in the shop. We get to cozy up on the shelves, like the friendly entrepreneurs we are. What an awesome feeling to have local businesses working together and supporting each other!
