You already know that Choices Markets is a destination for the highest quality, freshest, organic and local produce you can find. But did you know about our commitments to help create a secure and ethical global food system? There’s a reason that Choices has BC’s largest selection of organic and Fairtrade produce.
Our Produce Department has over 1,500 listed items. Whenever possible, we will always source product from a local BC farm first. We’ve partnered with over 150 farms and orchards across the province to ensure that you’ll always have access to high quality, BC produce. Our produce experts frequently visit our growers to ensure quality growing practices and develop lasting relationships.
Choices Markets is a huge supporter of the Fairtrade movement. We’ve committed to supporting Fairtrade for the social, economic, environmental, and sustainability benefits that improve the quality of life for people worldwide. Our produce experts have even taken trips to visit Fairtrade farms across the globe to better understand just why this program is so important. This commitment has won us Fairtrade Canada’s Retailer of the Year award seven of the last eight years! An achievement we couldn’t be more proud of.
As if that weren’t enough to make our Produce Department stand out in a crowd, Choices Markets also carries dozens of unique and exotic fruits and vegetables that simply can’t be found anywhere else. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, simply ask the produce team to bring it in and we’ll do our best to source it for you.
