What do dumplings, chocolates, bowls, bath bombs and bread have in common? They’re all things that are handmade in Cranbrook! On my latest ZenSeekers expedition, I spent the day at the Cranbrook Farmers Market (and a few other stops in town) to check out what the talented folks in this East Kootenays community are making from scratch. Here are some of my top finds:

At the market you can do a mead sampling, grab a cold brew, and shop from ceramic, wool, and knitted items. There’s fresh produce, local meats, and even a jewelry stand where you can get your name twisted into a delicate necklace gem while you wait.

Food trucks are always a big hit and you’ll want to visit Mama’s Dumplings for a taste you can’t get anywhere else! Coco is a master of her craft – she even taught me how to make dumplings during my visit. She brings the taste of Northern China to Cranbrook weekly at the market.

Stay a While

When you’re done your shopping and are ready for a full meal, I highly recommend Soulfood (1017 Baker Street, Cranbrook). I had breakfast for lunch and it was amazing. They also have infused teas and lemonades, and tons of organic, locally-grown, vegan, and other wholesome options.

Shop Anytime

My favourite purchase of the whole trip was my all natural insect repellant from Petra Naturally (2104C 2 St S, Cranbrook). Petra makes everything in-house with the best ingredients so you won’t smell like chemicals when you’re trying to enjoy nature.
