There's no easy, one-size-fits all set of rules for living a healthy life. That's why, at Pomme, we strive to provide you with as many options—and as much support—as possible to help you make the best choices for your own life, while sticking to some fundamental ethical and nutritional values when deciding what makes it onto our shelves. We consider our super knowledgeable staff one of our greatest resources. Never hesitate to ask for information or advice while you shop!
We research every company we work with. Not to sound negative, but we start off with some simple no's: no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners are allowed in our markets! Beyond that we look at a number of factors, like a focus on local and Canadian vendors, the uniqueness of products, the quality of ingredients, and the ethics of the companies—as well as listening to our customers' recommendations—to make sure you're getting the best of the best.
When it comes to produce, we're in tune with the seasons so we can work with our amazing local and BC growers whenever possible. We carry only organic or local spray-free. When it comes to international produce we make every effort to support Fair Trade. For a more in-depth look at our produce department, check out our Growers page and read up on a some of our local farms and ethical international suppliers!
Our Healthy Living department is packed full of products to help keep your body functioning at its best inside and out, from specialized vitamins and supplements to luxurious moisturizers. Again, we have some no's here: no parabens, sulphates, artificial sweeteners or additives. We really focus on Canadian makers—especially those in BC—and our Healthy Living Specialists are always happy to help you figure out the right choices for you!
