CFS Duncan Garage
103, 330 Duncan Street
Our Second Location
As of June 2015, we have two stores! Our first and main store, located on Hwy 1, is home to 10,000 square feet of planet friendly products together with lots of space and opportunity for community collaboration. Our second location is at the Duncan Garage in downtown Duncan. This store, a mere 900 square feet, will be serving the people who live, shop and work in downtown Duncan. It's much smaller, but the goal is to make sure it has all the organic and non-GMO grocery essentials including snacks, dairy, meat, and produce. Our downtown customers are invited to let us know what they would like us to carry. Yes, your membership will be applicable to purchases in both locations!
Real Food = Real People
by Nicolette Genier
Here at the CFS, we like to believe that we can change the world through food; by helping people to make better food choices. In fact, it's our mandate.
Food is fuel and eventually, when you have committed yourself to a regime of non-toxic, nutritious, real foods with real life forces, you will find yourself living the life you have always wanted. These are diffiult times and the first step to meeting the challenges of our times is to equip yourself with the best body and mind that you can get.
At the Community Farm Store there are over 50 happy health food enthusiasts standing ready to help. We are dedicated to carrying organic non-GMO products that heal, nourish, replenish, inspire and protect - at all levels: physical, mental and emotional. Like the saying goes, "you are what you eat". Imagine who you could be if all the food that went in your body was "alive" and "whole" and "clean".
Community Farm Store staff are here to help you make positive changes in your diet, with full consideration for where you are at and what you are ready for. Organic food is our passion and it is with true honor and respect that we position ourselves as a store to meet the needs of our times by assuring you, our most beloved customers, to improve your health with an organic, nutritious, and sustainable food plan that will make you feel terrific.
Eating "real food" is an adventure. It's fun. It leads to more energy, more clarity, more vibrancy, more resilience, and more focus. Cravings for "bad" food disappear and in its wake, you find yourself with a renewed sense of purpose and power. That, my friends, is the you we've all been waiting for!
A Note About Responsible Purchasing
Despite good intentions to be responsible consumers, we recognize it is difficult for our shoppers to read all the labels and research all the products. That is why we do the research for you. Here at the Community Farm Store we have over 50 staff who are 100% committed to the well being of our planet. It is important to each of us that the convictions we uphold personally are reflected in the products and services we offer. We believe that businesses have a moral obligation to take the initiative for removing toxic foods and products from the market. If every business waits for consumer demand to dictate the necessary changes, it might well be too late.
We are 100% locally owned. We are not a corporation that answers to investors. Our goal is to model a business that can remain strong and viable in the community while standing true to its values and principles - "people before profit, health before wealth, community before corporations, ecology before economy". Our goal is to educate our customers on whole food principles and healthy eating practices so as to acquire increased health, resilience, stamina and well being. Here at the CFS we truly wish to be a part of the solution and we are very proud and thankful to the people of this valley that support us in our ongoing efforts to make responsible purchasing decisions and we are very thankful for your ongoing patronage as we grow into our new location, build community and help to make the Cowichan Valley one of the greatest places in the world to live!
