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.
epicurean pantry: Epicurus promoted the attainment of pleasure by living altruistically and he maintained that a small delicacy is often as good as a feast.
