MARKET OPEN TUESDAY to SATURDAY 10AM - 6PM
After moving into our new commercial catering kitchen in the winter of 2019, we decided to spread our wings and expand for 2020. We have created a beautiful new retail space at the front of our kitchen on the corner of 34th Street and Quebec Avenue in Saskatoon. We are collaborating with several local vendors comprised of makers, bakers, farmers and growers, to bring you a carefully curated retail experience. We're not like other specialty grocery stores, we're here to be part of the community and showcase all the amazing things Saskatchewan has to offer. Like our own Chef de Partie Catering Private Label foods, with every thing from Ready Meals to Pickles.
Our inspiration and indeed many elements in the Tasting Room have come straight from the Ostapiw Farms where Chef Heather was born and raised. From barn beams, corral boards, Baba's butter churn to Gido's coat hooks, our space is immersed in the history of our family's agricultural roots.
"I have come full circle in my culinary career. Twenty or some odd years ago, when I was fresh from cooking school and off the farm, I wanted different and exotic foods from around the world; now - all I want is the taste of home. The pastures are empty at my family's farm and I have little time to get my hands in the dirt but I know a few people now who can help me out. It feels good to come home again."
Chef Heather Bekar-Schulte
The Chef de Partie family is committed to the collaborative growth of local partnerships in the food, farming and artisan community of Saskatchewan.
Paul Siwy is the Beekeeper behind Siwy Apiaries. In 2012, Paul moved from Ontario to a farm in the Saskatoon area north of Aberdeen.
After planting a large vegetable garden, he noticed that his vegetables didn’t seem to be very productive and thought that perhaps there might be a lack of pollinators.
He decided to join the Saskatoon Beekeeping Club, took courses then bought two hives in the spring of 2013. Now with 8 hives, Paul and his wife Sandy, who runs the extraction part of the operation, harvests and markets locally, raw Honey. The honey is harvested without pasteurization to ensure all the health benefits of enzymes and pollens remain unadulterated.
The hives are nestled in the heart of agricultural crops north of the Town of Aberdeen and in addition to crops the bees have access to an abundant supply of wildflowers and berry bushes.
Siwy Apiaries' honey is naturally thick, creamy and decadently spreadable. This is due to the natural crystallization process of raw honey which is a good thing and actually preserves the flavor and quality characteristics of the honey.
ORIGINAL CAERPHILLY CHEESE
APPLEWOOD SMOKED CHEESE
9 MILE OATMEAL STOUT CHEESE
Kevin Petty was visiting Sion, Switzerland for a friend’s wedding when he was first inspired to get into cheese. He was exposed to the best artisan cheesemakers in the world. Since then, he has learned from cheesemakers across the country including Brother Albéric from the trappist monastery near Holland, Manitoba and brought this knowledge home to Saskatoon, SK.
Traditional cheesemaking methods means cutting and cooking the curds by hand. The gentle handling and gradual heating of the curds is the key to to making great cheese. This is best done by feel; the artisan reacts to seasonal changes in the milk. High quality milk comes directly from the cow and straight into the vat where it is processed immediately.
Aged for a minimum of 60 days on thick rough-cut spruce boards from Northern Saskatchewan. Caerphilly style, slightly crumbly with subtle lemony notes.
The first cheese made in Saskatchewan from raw, unpasteurized milk. This European tradition preserves valuable enzymes and helps give the cheese sharp distinct flavour.

The Witzaney family farm was homesteaded in 1911 by grandpa Joseph. The farm has been passed down to the third generation of Witzaney's. It is currently owned and operated by David and Valerie Witzaney and their family.
In 1999, we reclaimed our heritage in organic farming. Within a few years our farmland was certified organic and we started to notice many benefits in our livestock, grain, and soil.
We have always been interested in operating our own family business. In 2007 we were presented with an opportunity to buy an organic processing mill. After some serious thought, this idea firmly took root. Operating a mill corresponds with our dedication to growing organic foods and adding value to our home grown products. We have found that through working with nature and the ecosystem that is already present on our farm, we are able to farm more effectively and efficiently.
Learning to work with nature, instead of trying to master it, keeps us on our toes. We're always learning, but that's part of the joy of farming!
Welcome to Knit + Pearl!
My name is Shayla.
After learning this hobby from my dear Grandma Marg, years later I decided to take this passion and hobby one step further! I have always had a love for knitting and thought it would be time to share it with you!
While slowly starting out, my main focus is going to be dishcloths, they are such a must have in your home but also are a great add to a house warming gift, wedding present or a great host gift and so much more! Once I am more into a routine I am hoping to bring on a couple new items in the near future!💕
In addition I am currently only going to be serving Saskatoon and surrounding area. I have no yet mastered the shipping and with the delays we are facing with Canada Post I am holding off for the near future!
Couple fun things about me ~I have my Diploma in Youth Care Work and have been working for the Government of Canada since the summer of 2019~ I have been playing ringette since the age of 9~ I love anything and everything travel!~ My favorite time of year is the Christmas season~ lastly my ultimate weakness is movie popcorn!

"PROMOTING HEALTHY LIFESTYLES
WITH THE BEST OF NATURE"
"Because of the high nutrient profile, in 1998, my Dad decided we would diversify our family farm by planting a seabuckthorn orchard. Organically certified through Ecocert, no chemicals, herbicides or pesticides have been used at any stage of plant growth.
My Mother would always be serving up some tea made with seabuckthorn leaves and my Dad would love to share his berries off the branch from our freezer with anyone who came to visit. He made a very large sign to stand in front of our orchard-- "Seabuckthorn-Vitamin C+". The gorgeous vibrant orange berries are unmistakable when passing by, and if any berries happen to be left on the trees in winter, they are a sight to behold against the white snow!
Our frozen berries first made their way into the restaurant industry. Chefs loved the tropical, tangy flavor that seabuckthorn berries offered to their traditional recipes. Since our first harvests, our offering has greatly expanded. Numerous products such as gelato, frozen berries and tea leaves can be found on retail shelves.
Our naturally grown seabuckthorn shrubs provide superior value added ingredients due to 190 bioactive components. The oil is the best single source known to man for vitamin E, vitamin C, beta carotene, unsaturated fatty acids, essential amino acids and flavonoids. Oil is found in the skin, pulp and seed of the berry. Customers are appreciating the nutrient value they can easily incorporate into protein shakes, smoothies, yogurt or oatmeal by simply adding seabuckthorn berries!"

Homestead Est. 1908
“My great grandfather was an immigrant from Russia and established this homestead in 1908. Four generations later, the farm lives on. We feel very fortunate and humbled to be able to raise our own family on a farm with such deep historical roots. We do not take this responsibility lightly and are excited with the opportunity to continue to enhance the use of sustainable practices that will ensure our children and grandchildren have the opportunity to produce some of the best food the world can consume. ” Aubrey Reban
Beef is Our Speciality
Grass Fed & Grain Finished
As far as animals go, beef is our specialty at Reban farms. We run a small, 200 head cow calf operation. A few years ago, we decided to start selling our own finished beef to family and friends. Not only did we have a positive response, we also discovered how enjoyable it was connecting with the consumer. It makes all the hard work so rewarding when you get to meet appreciative customers, while helping meet the demand for farm direct beef.
In addition to the beef herd, we also run a grain farm operation that produces oil seeds, cereals and pulses. We use our home-grown forages and grains to feed and finish our animals.
What makes us different?
So why order your beef from us? We provide you with a farm direct product that is high in nutritional value, comes from the use of sustainable farm practices, tastes better, offers the convenience of free delivery, AND saves you money.
