The community's first zero waste organic grocery store, where they only use packaging that is reusable, refillable, or compostable.

Farm Bound Zero Waste has announced that they will finally open on April 1.

“It’s official! We are opening April 1, no it’s not a joke, but after all the floods, construction, challenges, and shifty go betweens we thought it would be hilarious to open on this comical day,” they announced on Facebook. “Please come to the store to prank us!”

Although the store is only about 800-square-feet, it will offer a wide range of produce grown in B.C. or the Okanagan, as well as locally sourced meats, tofu, spices, zero waste living supplies, and dried goods.

Located in the downtown core at 438 Lawrence Ave, the store will also have an apothecary that will provide products like herbs and essential oils.

“We want to give people that opportunity to take that next step beyond just eating organic and local and take a look at what we don’t have to use in order to get our food, like the plastic and the packaging, and the bags,” explains Jaye Siegmueller, founder and owner.
