Maya in Exile Garden

Vancouver, BC - 15th season at our market
In 1986 five Maya families came to Canada as refugees from Guatemala. Nearly a decade later, urged on by a UBC student, these families secured a plot of land at UBC Farm to practice their Mayan farming traditions and keep this millennia-old cultural knowledge alive for future generations. Now, firmly rooted in the Maya in Exile Garden, the ancestral crops known as the “Three Sisters” (corn, beans and squash) are grown along with an ebullient array of flowers and sold at UBC Farm’s Saturday markets. Along with the garden’s output, the goal is to celebrate and share this rich yet relatively unknown Indigenous knowledge and its stories in order to educate local people about true Mayan culture. To that end, members of the Maya in Exile Garden offer public workshops such as Three Sisters in the Kitchen and what is a traditional Maya cooking workshop. Authentic meals utilizing las tres hermanas (The Three Sisters) are featured, such as tamalitos de flor de calabaza con salsa de miltomate (tamales filled with squash flowers served with tomatillo salsa), ensalada tradicional (traditional salad), ejotes en sopa (green beans in soup) and dulce de calabaza (squash dessert). Keep an eye out for these workshops by joining the newsletter and meet the members of the Maya in Exile Garden at the farmers market every Saturday. Proceeds from the garden’s sales help fund a project in Guatemala that develops Mayan girls’ weaving skills to create unique, sellable goods and thus help lift these other families’ incomes and futures.

The Indian Pantry

Vancouver, BC - 1st season at our market
Our founder and owner Chef Tushar realized that there was a large gap in the spice industry in Vancouver.

He also saw a misrepresentation regarding the types of Indian food being sold in Canada – nothing that represented various state-based cuisines. All the spice mixes and pickles being sold are either flown over from India and have a huge environmental price tag or it’s likely that they were sitting in large storage warehouses losing freshness until they are sold.

The Indian Pantry wants to introduce you to spices and pickles that have been freshly made and ground, with vegetables and fruits from your community and preserved within a 6 month period.

Masala Factory


Vancouver, BC - 1st season at our market
We started with a simple idea of producing high-quality, fresh, and clean Indian spice blends for customers who value the authentic taste of Indian cuisine. Our unique blends are engineered to deliver a distinctive flavor that sets us apart from the competition, and our goal is to provide customers with an easy and convenient way to experience the authentic flavors of Indian cuisine in their own kitchens.
Our spice blends are made in small batches and packaged in glass jars to preserve freshness. We believe in using only natural ingredients to create our blends, and we are proud to offer a product that is completely free of chemicals and additives. Our customers can trust that they are getting a clean, healthy, and delicious product every time they choose one of our blends. Some of our recipes are traditional ones which have been passed down.
We understand the importance of providing customers with a product they can trust, and we take great pride in producing high-quality, flavorful blends that bring a taste of India to every meal. Our products are standalone, meaning that some blends only require the addition of salt and chili to taste, saving customers time in the kitchen and reducing waste.

Udderly Organics Soap

Richmond, BC - 2nd season at our market
At Udderly Organic Soap Co, we craft Goat Milk soaps that nourish naturally.

All of our soaps are crafted using the cold process method. Cold process soap making is an art form, a combination of chemistry and creativity, resulting in a product that is as much a treat for the skin as it is for the senses. Unlike commercial soaps that are often mass-produced with harsh chemicals, cold process soap making is a method that allows for more control over ingredients and ensures that the beneficial properties of those ingredients remain intact.

At the heart of our soap making process is the star ingredient: goat milk. Goat milk is a treasure trove of nutrients for your skin, including vitamins, minerals, and proteins that nourish and hydrate. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin, yet effective for a range of skin conditions.

Handcrafting soap using the cold process method with organic ingredients and goat milk eliminates the need for harsh synthetic additives and preservatives. It's a return to nature and simplicity, embracing ingredients that are as good for our skin as they are for the environment. Udderly Organic Soap Co promises a bathing experience that is as indulgent as it is beneficial for your skin health. Embrace the richness of handcrafted care, and let your skin feel the difference.
