PEOPLE WE LOVE!
This page is dedicated to these inspiring business owners featured in YEGBox, who are doing what they can to keep YEG original. We will only list vendors AFTER they have been in the box in an attempt to keep you guessing.......
Fruits of Sherbrooke. We love their mission to rescue urban fruit and make food for us as well as those in need (school programs, community kitchens). The Moroccan Cherry jam in your first box was a flavor created just for YEGBox! They also spend their time teaching - Yes! You can sign up for jam making classes! Visit them at fruitsofsherbrooke.ca and you will love them too!
Violet Chocolate Company. Created by Rebecca, a Red Seal chef, the flavors she puts together are like no other! There is no doubt she is an artist, her seasonal chocolates are delicious sculptures !! Sometimes I feel a twinge of guilt for eating something so beautiful....but then again....it's chocolate. The wrapper on the bar in the first box was designed and printed by local artists at Salgado Fenwick. Did you notice it was the Edmonton Crest before you tore into that delicious chocolate (you animal!) ? That's okay, you can buy more. Learn more about her and how to get more at www.thevioletchocolatecompany.com
