Opening the brick and mortar grocery store 'Fresh Local Fare' in September of 2017 was a challenge, after witnessing it's first winter in operations, a tough decision was made to close up shop, and in consequence, Winnipeg's beloved online grocery store 'My Farmers' Market' which had served Winnipeg since 2013.  The launch of the store Fresh Local Fare became much more capital intensive endeavor than anticipated.  Nathan Steele says "This was a personal initiative which myself and my partner believed in whole heartidly.  We leave in good standing with all of our producers and our dozens of employees which were employed with the company.  It was not easy, but now that is decided we feel very optimistic about what is ahead.  However, we need help to make it a reality."

"We have learned a great deal about local foods, the people who produce it, our environment, our relationships with all of it.  We can apply what we have learned and further contribute to embettering our communities.  Our vision is clear and we want to invite others to be apart of it."

Nathan & Christina have a deep desire to continue making a positive impact on their communities healths, their environment and the people around them.  "It is well with us now and have come to terms with the choice to make this change, since we have shifted our focus with plans to launch a vegetarian centered farm/animal sanctuary.  On this organic produce acarage, select rescued farm animals can live out a happy life without the fear of becoming food.  Depending on it's success we would plan to relaunch another efficient beneficial way to connect consumers to real healthy local foods."

This campaign is meant to usher this dream quickly into a reality with the purchase the location for the proposed farm and fund it's startup.  Opening for public farm days as early as spring of 2020.

Thank you to all of customers of both businesses over the last 5 years.  We now would like to warmly welcome you, and your friends, to join us in our mission.
