We won a Saanich Business Environmental Award in 2020!
The Awards are an initiative of the Saanich Environment and Natural Areas Advisory Committee (ENAC). Since 2000, they have recognized more than 150 people and organizations contributing to protection of the natural environment in Saanich.
Red Barn Market received the business award for leadership in local food security and sustainable business practices. Our business started as a small farm market in rural Saanich and has grown to a locally-owned grocery supporting local producers and communities by providing local products. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, our business supports alternative transportation to access our markets and offers a fuel-free electric courier for online shopping deliveries. The Red Barn Market’s business practices include an extensive recycling program, re-use of unsold produce, and regular donations that support community stewardship efforts.
