Welcome

Plenty is an updated version of the classic general store, designed with a focus on community, sustainability and craftsmanship.

At Plenty we celebrate the pleasures of feast and field, yet are conscious of the need to make sustainable choices.

We source locally, regionally and farther afield to offer a carefully edited selection of fine foods and simple, everyday objects that join function with craftsmanship and art.

Plenty is named after a small a town in Saskatchewan. The name represents hope and optimism, and expresses values of community and caring. The word plenty also suggests a celebration of the earth’s bounty and gratitude for simple, honest pleasures.

At Plenty we support the Slow Food motto of Good, Clean, and Fair.  12 general principles guide purchasing decisions for Plenty by giving preference to goods that are at least one of the following: biodegradable, certified, clean, diverse, efficient, handcrafted, local, recycled, renewable, repurposed, social, and timeless.  We are a member of the Green Collective.  View a great article about Plenty at the Get Fresh Blog.

We carry spices, herbs, teas, mushrooms, cheese and confections, as well as soaps, household goods, pottery, cookbooks and magazines.
