05 Jul our commUNITY: Eat Fresh
Hot off their two year birthday celebrations on June 28, Eat Fresh Market in Parksville is this month’s highlight in our commUNITY blog.
Located on the main drag in Parksville this market is a must stop shop for local food, friendly faces, and a fresh take on a traditional farm market. They pride themselves on making everything from scratch, whether it’s marinades and sauces for their fresh cut meats, or pastries and desserts for the bakery counter, nothing comes out of a bucket! By hiring Red Seal Certified Chefs, Butchers, and Bakers the team at Eat Fresh have become product experts creating delicious options. Eat Fresh carries a large line of local produce and meats highlighting farmers as close to parksville as possible. While Eat Fresh focus is on local suppliers and farmers they also have a large selection of specialty import products.
“Our Customers are so supportive,” Clayton from Eat Fresh told us, “It’s their feedback that determines the direction and evolution of our store.” It is very obvious when walking into the store the sense of passion and community involvement that has gone into this market. Customers truly are the focus of everything Eat Fresh does.
As they embark on their third year in business Eat Fresh is up to some big things. A renovation to expand the deli counter and prepared meals section will enlarge the store to one and half times its current size! They also hinted that more locations are in the works (they are called Eat Fresh Markets after all!).
The next time you find yourself in Parksville make sure to stop by Eat Fresh, grab some snacks and head to the beach for a picnic!
