We are so proud and excited to partner with Stone Candles, and to offer their line of perfect and light refreshing scents for the season. Follow your nose to our Housewares Department for the following four fantastic fragrances for summer:
Elder - Crisp green aroma of a freshly sliced cucumber is enveloped in a bouquet of lily of the valley, rose, freesia, and jasmine with hints of sweet melon and undertones of Dewy leaves. A heart of harvested white teal leaves gives this beautifully fragranced candle a light summery aroma.
Acai - A bevy of sweet, succulent acai berries straight from the Amazon. Raspberry, strawberry, pear, and sweet pineapple make the top layer. The mid layer is classic jasmine, carnation, gardenia, peach and the bottom is a soft musk.
Mangosteen - The fragrance begins with a strong mangosteen berry influence and a green galbanum character. These notes continue into the main theme where they are joined with a peach accord. This is followed by jasmine accord and… Read More

While visiting a trade show last year, I discovered a wonderful line of body care products from Beekman 1802. What I loved about Beekman 1802 was the story of the creators behind the products, the ingredients that go into the products, and the luxurious benefits one gets from using the products. And the scents are an amazing added bonus.
After taking the products home to use for myself, I was convinced that our customers would also love the line of soaps, hand creams, and lip balms. So, I brought them into our Kitchens Department just in time for Valentine's Day. You can now find the following scents in our stores: heirloom rose, honey & orange blossom, and honey & rose.
Beekman 1802 Mercantile was founded in 2008. But actually, they consider themselves to be a 211-year-old company.
When Josh Kilmer-Purcell (advertising executive and NY Times Bestselling author of I Am Not Myself These Days & The Bucolic Plague) and his partner Brent Ridge (physician and former Vice… Read More

I think we can all relate that life is busy! We are all caught up with work, school, the kids, and other mundane tasks, such as getting an oil change or cleaning house. All this busy stuff often hinders our passionate intentions for taking on healthy eating habits for the New Year. We take shortcuts (enter fast food) in planning dinner, and grab a doughnut in the morning while telling ourselves "just this once!" Don't let these plan-b options turn your resolutions upside down. Plan ahead with a meal prep program!
Meal prep is about planning ahead for healthy eating. With a meal prep program, all of the work is done at the beginning of the week (the best time is on Sundays). It's more cost effective and can be a fun event shared with friends or a “prep partner.” The idea is to create large batch meals and perfect portions to last you throughout the week. This way, you'll have all your meals cooked, conveniently packaged, and ready-to-grab as you fly out the door.
Meal prep starts… Read More

Ener-C was designed with you in mind. They have produced a delightful-tasting, effervescent vitamin drink mix that comes in a variety of natural fruit flavours for you to enjoy.

Here are some of my favorite gifts for the upcoming holiday, some of which are new to Bristol Farms:
Second Nature by Hand
Second Nature by Hand is a small artisan business specializing in unique, handmade products. Much of what they create originates from salvaged and reclaimed materials.
Somehow, the hobby they love has turned into a growing business for their family. There is something special about handmade work - handmade treasures contain soul, character, and a story. The Second Nature by Hand story began about 15 years ago after creating their first pieces in the garage and taking them to a local art fair. The early years were spent at art shows where they discovered, first-hand, the excitement people felt toward the handmade work. Since those… Read More
