Check out what’s new on our online store

Over the past year, we’ve been busily working away at our online store. We want to make sure that those of you who may have moved away can still get the Sprout goodness you love.

You can expect to find beautiful locally crafted personal care and gift items like candles, shampoos, soaps, essential oils and more. Food is not likely to make it onto the online store, but it could. Each week our goal is to offer at least two new products online.

We will ship anywhere. (In fact, we recently sent two orders down to the States!) Of course, even if something isn’t on the online store and you want it shipped to you, just send us a note and we will make it happen.

Apples and Pears from Martin Rothe’s farm

Apple season has always been our favorite time of year at Sprout, and this year is no exception. This past week, we received a gorgeous shipment of Royal Gala, Jonagold and Fuji applesalong with Bartlett pears and Bosc pears from Martin Rothe’s biodynamic farm in Oliver, BC. In around two weeks time we expect to receive Winesaps, Ambrosia, Pinova and Anjou pears. The apples from Martin’s farm are certainly worth the wait each year. They are truly wonderful.

Make sure to check out our weekly recipe, written by a different staff member each week. This week’s recipe is a delicious soup from Andrea. The items in each weekly recipe are on sale at 10% off for that entire week!

Squash season

The weather is a getting cooler every day and our food repitoire is shifting toward warmer, comforting foods. Personally, this is my favorite season for meals. Soups, curry, stews and more – I love it.

Fall-harvest squashes and other local favorites make great sides or mains. Here is one I made last night – very simple and delicious! The whole Sprout family loves this one:

– 1 Butternut squash (cubed and peeled)

– coconut oil, melted (enough to coat cubed squash)

– a generous sprinkle of Simply Organic curry powder

– a generous sprinkle of Simply Organic garlic powder

– salt and pepper to taste

Roast at 350-375 degrees for approx 45 minutes. Serve with your favorite main dish. Stand back and watch it be devoured!

Time for some ‘shine

Have you tried Moonshine Mama’s yet?

Juiced with love on Saltspring island, Melinda & her all star team use only the highest quality, organic ingredients. Ginger, turmeric root, coconut oil, raw honey and pepper- comes in 3 flavours: Lemon, lemon lime and sour cherry. Soon the Winter Warrior will be available too!

It’s a daily elixir- I find it’s quite effective in supporting our immune systems to ward off colds and flus in the fall/winter. Personally, I drink it all year!

Make sure to try it on your next visit. Each jar contains 16, 1 oz serving

This week at Sprout

We hope you are all settling back into your routines and getting back to your healthy habits.

With the nice weather, you can expect to continue seeing a good selection of local produce.

We eagerly await local apples! Another favorite of yours that we have a great supply of is local delicata squash. These guys are lovely and tasty. Make sure to get them while they are in season.

Locally yours,

Nicole and the entire Sprout Crew

New fun things

 

Fall. I love it. It’s my favorite season, and it’s when I can really focus on my beloved Sprout.

The picture is a taste of some new items in stock now. Just ordering some beautiful large S’well bottles to add to the line up. Stay tuned on more new products and categories coming soon.

And, for you dear clients who have moved away: our online store is operational and ready for your orders! No matter where you live, you can have a dose of Sprout. If there is an item you want, but we haven’t got online yet, just drop me a line and we can make it happen.

Back at it!

It might be back to school season, but Mother Nature still thinks its summer. With the cold and wet spring, then smoke filled skies, farmers are finding that certain crops will be at least three weeks delayed.

We are still enjoying Martin Rothe’s beautiful biodynamic peaches and nectarines. They are going fast – and we still have a few cases up for grabs. His local apples might make an appearance by the last week of September or early October.

Olera Farms continues to deliver their beautiful, local crops, of salad mix, heirloom tomatoes, broccoli, and piccalino cucumbers.

Welcome back to September everyone. We look forward to seeing you all very soon!
