What You Might Not Know About Mindful Market and Eco Hub
In our quickly changing world, we need to be collectively critical about the products we purchase. We need to buy products with our family’s and the earth’s health in mind. As opposed to the copy-paste products sold at large companies, local shops are a source of healthy and eco-friendly options. The staff, too, are made up of people from the community. These people are kind and humble and are ready to go the extra mile to make your shopping experience as smooth as possible.
At Mindful Market and Eco Hub, we are committed to giving our customers food and products that we have selected for a specific reason, which is better health for all. The products we sell are good for our bodies and our planet, made by local and regional producers, and have a story of their own - a story that connects you to the food and products you buy.
1. Refillery or refill station
Bring your own containers in (or purchase them from us), and we will refill them with soaps, cleansers, shampoos, conditioners, laundry detergent, and much more. This helps reduce your plastic consumption and leaves you knowing you have done something good for the planet.
2. Local meats
Our meats come from farmers we know and who live in our area. These are well-priced and free of the stuff you don’t want in your body. We carry local meats, including organic and grass-fed options, lamb, water buffalo, and local fish.
3. Gluten-free products
We know how difficult it is to eat when you have to eat gluten-free. As a result, we have several lines of gluten-free products, including a delicious line of loaves of bread and baked goods from Healthy Creations Bakery in Windsor.
4. House-roasted coffee
Coffee is best when it is freshly roasted. Mindful Coffee is roasted here at our store, and you will notice the difference when you brew your morning cup. We have a breakfast blend, medium blends, dark blends, fair-trade organic, and extra dark blends. If you love your coffee really dark, then you will love our Black Pearl Blend!
5. Homemade preserves
In our family, we have stopped buying condiments for our hamburgers and sandwiches. We keep our fridge stocked with yummy preserves from Kountry Kitchen Cupboard and top our sandwiches and burgers with Chow Chow, Zucchini Relish, Corn Salsa, and Mother’s Favourite (a flavourful blend of beets, cabbage, and horseradish). These preserves are a healthy alternative to condiments, and they are far more flavorful. We also carry pickles from The Pickle Station - a local pickle company located in Chatham.
How we keep it real, fresh, and local
a. Stellar customer service
We pride ourselves on our customer service. Our products all have a story, and we are happy to help you find the product you are looking for. Ask us about our products, and we will share the story behind them.
b. Sense of community
Supporting the local businesses can mean so much to so many. When you shop with us, you are supporting us as a local business and supporting every local producer who helps to stock our store. Our locals do everything they can to make our dreams come true. By helping us keep ours and their dreams alive, you’re directly bringing happiness into all our lives.
c. Customized dietary requirements
We support those who have special diets. If you are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, or even just looking to eat more thoughtfully, we can help. Additionally, our vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free items are equally as delicious and healthy as the other products we have. This means that you no longer have to deprive yourself of the good flavorful produce even when you are going in the health-conscious direction.
