We felt so supported on Jan. 27 as we celebrated our incredible customers. From delicious appetizers, deals on oils and vinegars, and scrumptious cinnamon buns from The Olive Tree, we hope you enjoyed our Customer Appreciation Day as much as we did!

Steinbach Update: What a Delicious Day!

Steinbach Update: What a Delicious Day!

Customer Appreciation Day was a success because of all our amazing customers! We really appreciate everyone that came out to help us celebrate 5 years in business! What stole the show that day was certainly the food! My word! The Maple Baked Beans we cooked up were a hit with the crowd (find the recipe here). And Old Church Bakery did an amazing job with the Maple Pecan Sticky Buns and Saskatoon Buns using our Maple Balsamic and Blueberry Balsamic. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed them. It was neat to hear customers commenting that they were surprised how much they enjoyed the Saskatoon bun -...

As I wrote down some of my goals for 2018, I found myself jotting down “be more adventurous with my cooking." I think its time to put my go-to meal, Tuscan chicken, aside for a while, and try some recipes from our new Greece Cookbook! Maybe it's time to try making pastitsio? Or stop purchasing my hummus and try making it with our Garlic Olive...

New & Returning: Christmas Means New Products!

Introducing new flavours and products at Prairie Oils & Vinegars!

NEW Mint Agrumato Olive Oil - Aromatic, true-to-herb and oh so fresh! This all-natural, mint agrumato EVOO is produced by crushing the olives and mint leaves simultaneously in the same press without the use of any added essences.

Winkler Update: Sneak Peek Success

Winkler Update: Sneak Peek Success

November was a blur of excitement, gift packs and wonderful customers. We experienced Italy, we learnt how to say ‘Charcuterie’ (shahr-koo-tuh-ree) and brought out our beautiful Christmas gift packs at our annual event, Sneak Peek to Christmas! The evening was filled with bubbly customers looking to get their Christmas shopping done. Everyone got to taste some delicious appetizers from the cookbooks we feature in our store, like our amazingly sweet Apple Cider (made with our Cinnamon Pear Balsamic... you have to try it!). We partnered with our lovely next-door neighbours for this event, Pure Anada Cosmetics! And were able to feature...
