Organic Shops In The Fraser Valley

For starters, let’s dive into some of the reasons organic eating is a good and healthy decision to make! Organic foods do not have the following;  

  • pesticides 
  • herbicides 
  • fertilizers from synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge 
  • ionizing radiation 
  • growth hormones  
  • antibiotics 

Which is pretty amazing considering we live in a world ruled by processed foods.  Organic crops are also more nutritious for you and are usually GMO-free! All the more reason to shop organic!  We aren’t here to convert you or anything, but we are here to keep you in the loop when it comes to.. well… anything positively affecting your lifestyle! With that, here are a few of our favourite local and organic shops in the Fraser Valley!

Why Soy Candles Are Better: Just Candle Co.

Back in the day when we had never heard about Hygge, my sister came home with the idea of making our own candles.  The process involved using an empty milk carton in which a wick was steadied as we poured melted paraffin with chunks of our favourite broken wax crayons.  For variety, you might put ice in the bottom first to create those awesome designs on the outside of the candle.  Once the wax was set, you cut away the milk carton and your candle was ready to be gifted to your mom as the perfect addition to her “groovy” 60s décor!

(White) Rocking in South Surrey: Jenny Bray of South Rock Buzz

I first stumbled across South Rock Buzz when I contemplating a move to South Surrey/ White Rock. Owned by Jenny Bray, its Instagram is full of family friendly events that helped to convince me that it was a great community to move to.

South Rock Buzz is an online community designed to connect and inform residents about all of the great things this community has to offer from highlighting local businesses, events, and other hidden gems throughout South Surrey and White Rock.

The Modern General Store: Bringing a Vancouver Vibe to South Surrey

It’s kind of an embarrassing story, but I first stumbled across The Modern General Store with my parents when
our GPS took us on a wild goose chase while we were looking for a place to get a snack. Once we finally found
our destination, we were struck by its unexpected warm and welcoming atmosphere and commitment to local
goods and provisions. I shared that it had an “urban-hipster” feel—which is a total a bonus in my books! Our
family has returned several times and are big fans of the Sunday brunch; my hubby loves the frittata, our kiddo
loves the waffles, and I love the trendy avocado toast.
