Making it simple to Give Local

GiftBag2013_collageR1Are you looking for the perfect gift this Holiday Season? Well, we’ve come up with something we think is pretty close – The Mustard Seed Holiday Gift Bag. Tastefully package in our new reusable jute shopping bags, we have chosen a delightful selection of local products that will make your mouth water!

All bag contents will be the same, except for the option of choosing cranberry tea or holiday coffee. The bag includes the following items:

  • Anton Kozlik’s Balsamic Figs & Dates Mustard
  • Barrie’s Asparagus Gluten-Free Tortilla Chips
  • From These Roots Ontario Peach Salsa
  • Cake ‘n Loaf Peppermint Patties
  • Marci’s Bakery Fruit n’ Fibre Holiday Muffin Mix
  • Cherry Lane Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • Baba Link Farm Blackberry Apple Jam
  • Morden’s Organic Farmstore Granola
  • Bauman Apiaries Creamed Elderberry Honey
  • Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh Tea OR
  • Homegrown Hamilton Holiday Blend Coffee

How to order & when to pick up your Holiday Gift Bags

Gift bag pre-ordering has now closed so that our local suppliers can put together their orders. Holiday gift bags cost $55 each and pickup will be at 460 York Boulevard on the following dates:

  • Friday December 13, 4pm-8pm
  • Saturday December 14, 1pm-5pm

Not only is it the perfect gift , its a special way to support local food producers this holiday season and a great conversation piece about our soon-to-open Co-op.

Another great local gift idea….

CSACrateThere’s a new CSA in town, but instead of fruits and vegetables, this CSA is offering professionally-curated collections of original art by established local artists. Arts organization CoBALT Connects is bringing the popular buy-local model to Hamilton’s art scene, supporting 10 artists in the creation of new work, and providing an accessible way for art lovers to begin or expand collections. The three discipline-specific collections (Fine Craft, Photography and Illustration) are for sale now at a price of $350, but for friends, investors and members of the Mustard Seed Co-op, the collections are being offered at a $25 discount, with CoBALT Connects donating the remaining $25 back to the Mustard Seed Co-op.

A limited number of each collection is available, so buy now and pick up your new art at the last art crawl of the year on December 13th. To read more about the artists and the collections, and to purchase, visit:

  3. We received a gift bag and are enjoying the contents on a day to day basis. Gone quickly were the chocolate covered cherries. Made the muffins and although I froze half, all are gone. What a wonderful gift for Christmas this was and is.
