Localize Your Food

We are not just a grocery store; we are a local grocery store. When we say local, we mean we work with smallscale and not-so-small scale local food producers. The province of BC is rich with talented "foodies" that create products that are unique, distinct and showcase the bounty of BC's food industry.

At Nature's Pickin's, we are the first in BC to bring in "Localize Your Food." A project highlighting the products on our shelves that are locally grown or produced.

We would like to thank all the wonderful people, farmers and producers for participating with us in this project. To learn more about the Localize Your Food Project click here.
