Giving through Gifting

Food Preservation, General Store

We love local food and homemade gifts any time of year, but especially during the holidays! Here are a few items that are currently available in the Roulant General Store. They’re perfect for holiday gifts or to serve with a nice spread of cheeses or charcuteries; hello apple butter, chutney and ground cherry jam! Bonus: every purchase supports our work.

The fruit and vegetables in our products are grown in Montreal, the vegetables come from our farm in Senneville and our two urban agriculture sites, and the fruit is salvaged from homeowners’ yards (with their permission of course) by the Fruits Défendus collective! Volunteers learn and participate every step of the process from the farm to the kitchen.

Volunteer Antoine Porcheron makes gorgeous art prints – a steal at $10.


We’ve got a great cookbook on our shelves, Learning From Our Elders, which celebrates cooking and sharing food between generations and cultures! ($25)

Your purchase supports our work; all funds are re-invested to further the Roulant’s mission: bringing people through the power of food! Stop in; we’re open 6 days a week!
