Shop Local

With dreams of spring on our minds, we’ve been playing with grow kits, Alberta-made products and zero-waste items. Growing herbs and mushrooms indoors has
kept us busy. Once they are ready, we like to sauté them and serve with steamed dumplings drizzled with chili oil. Toss any odd bits into your new compost
bin completing the zero-waste cycle. Purchase any of these products through their individual websites or browse each site to find a list of local retailers.

This month our Shop Local column also features compost bins from Liz and Lottie, Honest Dumplings, self-watering herb jars from Kricket’s and chili oil from Oil Jefe Co.

Red Fox Fungi

Red Fox Fungi is a mushroom farm geared towards sustainable, chemical-free and responsible farming practices. Family owned and operated; Red Fox says it grows the highest quality gourmet mushrooms in southern Alberta and are currently offering mushroom kits through the spring. The mushroom grow-kits are perfect for those looking to channel their inner green thumb and have some fun…ghi. Kits are available in: lion’s mane, phoenix oyster, blue oyster, and pearl oyster. Once you’ve started growing your ’shroom kit, you can continue on in your garden, patio container, or even along your pathway all summer long. In addition to the grow kits, Red Fox Fungi is offering dehydrated-mushroom seasoning blends crafted with at least half a pound of dried mushrooms in each jar. This spring they are adding a new product to the mix; original sweet and spicy mushroom jerky. Plan to visit the farm in August during Alberta Open Farm Days.
