Since 2005, owners John and Dani MacKenzie have nurtured Anita’s Organic based on their commitment to a simple, healthy life: family, employees, community, environment, and the tradition of pure, wholesome organic foods. Their approach is best summarized into two words: be well.
Anita’s Retail Store has a been in the same location for close to twenty years. It has always been a quaint space to find all of our products in a variety of sizes as well as lots of other great organic baking ingredients and other goods. Even thinking about moving was a big step, but when The Local Harvest Market moved in just down the road last year, we watched as they transformed the existing building into a beautiful market space for farm fresh produce grown organically on their 25 acres of land. Talking with owners Dan and Helen, they are as passionate about what they do as we are. The fresh produce they provide the community and their joy of educating their customers, it a perfect match. We have a shared vision of providing our community the highest quality wholesome foods grown with sustainability as the primary template. We both care deeply about our customers well being and the environment which we all live.
With this in mind, it made sense to partner together and offer the community all that we have to offer in one location. On April 10 at 5pm, Anita’s Organic Retail store will close its doors at the Mill and move just 30 seconds down the road to the new Local Harvest Market location at 7697 Lickman Rd. We will reopen on April 14 at 9am, under one roof with the Local Harvest Market. We are excited with this move as it will offer our customers our fresh stone and fine ground flours, flakes & mixes, high quality dried fruit, nuts, seeds and snacks, savoury legumes, and healthy whole grains, plus you will find farm-fresh produce, a café and bakery all under one roof! Nothing about Anita’s is changing, just the location. We are proud of our organic vision and will continue to offer our great quality, organic products and services.
Our partnership with The Local Harvest Market will allow so many more opportunities that restrictions at our current location do not. The Local Harvest Market will be open all year round from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday with the possibility of longer hours during the summertime. You will still be able to shop as normal, just in a new location and customers will still be able to place orders with us via telephone; email; and online for delivery and or pick up. We simply ask that you bear with us during the move and as we put our new processes and procedures into place. We cherish each and every one of our customers and thank you for your continued support.
I hope you are as excited as we are!!!
We look forward to welcoming you to our new store on April 14th.
The Anita’s Organic Team
