Meet the Founders of Gathering Place Trading
In a world where companies are racing to be the fastest, we still ship by sea freight. In an industry where our competitors don’t know where their products come from, we know all our farmers by name. And in an era where everybody wants to pay less, we will gladly pay more if it supports a Canadian farmer.
We don’t want to be like everyone else.
And we have a sneaking suspicion you might not want to either.
Glad you found us.
Some Kind Words
Organic Cinnamon Powder
Excellent quality. I buy 500g at a time and it's just the best flavour from start to finish (we use cinnamon daily). The smell is divine! Excellent product, excellent customer service. Thanks for such a great product.
Truly delicious. I usually buy the larger quantity to share with my two adult daughters who love it as much as I do. Also bought various spices such as thyme, black pepper, cinnamon, coriander, cardamom. They smell and taste fresher than any other commercial brands.
Just a quick note to let you know that your curry blend (the hot variety) is the *absolute *best curry we have every had! Alas, I only have 1 more pack so will have to make sure I get down to Lifestyles Market before we run out. I also purchased cumin and coriander, which I haven't tried yet, but I'm sure they are great.
