Here at the Westcoast Pantry, your General Store (and more!) at the Victoria Public market, we make some great products always keeping our “Food is Medicine” Philosophy in mind. We specialize in Healthy, Gluten Free, and Vegan Baking but it doesn’t stop there! Our big passion is Fermentation, and we understand the health benefits they possess so we’re more than happy to share our knowledge!
From our Freshly Baked Gluten Free, Vegan Chocolate Banana Loaf to our own Organic, Raw, House Made Almond Milk, for drinks from our Organic Coffee Bar, to our Sprouted Hummus and Health Dressing, we use only the very best, almost always Organic, raw materials. Our mission is to model sustainable, eco friendly business practices that can have a positive impact on our customer health and the planet.

Our “Healthiest Yellow” and “Healthiest Green” Popcorn

value of our Canadian Grown Organic NON-GMO Popcorn with:
Red Palm OIL (sustainable grown and harvested and is high in antioxidants and vitamin A),
Nutritional Yeast (Redstar Vegetarian Support Nutritional Yeast not only tastes cheesie and amazing, it’s high in B vitamins)
Himalayan Pink Salt (uncontaminated, fossilized sea salt that contains 72 trace minerals!)
And Spirulina and Chlorella for our “Healthiest Green” version.
