Celebrate Local Comfort Food at Sobeys & Foodland

Comfort food is defined as food that is satisfying because it is prepared in a simple or traditional way and reminds you of home, family, or friends. It makes you feel good. It takes you back, rekindles warm memories, and reminds you who you are and where you come from. It’s simple, honest and delicious. Local food shares many of the same connections, so it’s really no wonder that comfort food and local ingredients go hand in hand.

Turkeys, trees and assorted treats. Deck your halls with local.

The holidays are in full swing and when it comes to shopping local, a lot of folks are focused on finding the perfect gifts for the people on our list. But, let’s not forget about how much we do at home during the festive season. From your Christmas tree to your Christmas dinner, everything you buy locally does as much good for local producers and your community as the local gifts you buy.

The Local Gift Effect

You’ve probably heard the saying, “what goes around comes around”, but when it comes to buying your gifts from local small businesses and producers this holiday season, “what goes around stays around” is probably more accurate. That’s because when spend your money at small businesses in your community, more of that money stays and circulates in the local community.
