Whether you love shopping in bulk or want to reduce your waste in 2021, Living Pantry Refillery Marketplace in Blaine is about to become your favorite store. The new refillery on Peace Portal Drive offers ethically sourced products for your pantry, home, and body, without the disposable packaging of traditional stores.
“Whether you need something for a quick snack, or you are looking to fill the coffers, we offer a great selection of organic, sustainably grown bulk foods for your pleasure,” says the team at Living Pantry.
Shop owners Shawna and Seppi Morris have been working on their vision for the Refillery for years. Their sustainable operation helps customers access ethically sourced products that are good for people and the planet.
Shawna and Seppi have always been passionate about ethically sourced food. The two have over 30 years of experience in menu development, recipe development, and healthy eating education, and are excited to share their knowledge with customers.
All of the products at Living Pantry are exclusively from local farms, including Sumas River Farm, Spotted Owl Farm, The Crows Farm, Hedlin Farms, Osprey Hill Farm, Cabrera Farms, Spring Time Farm, Ralph’s Greenhouse, and more. As the seasons change, so does the stock and produce at the shop. Shoppers can call ahead to inquire about specific offerings, but are encouraged to come in and check out the shop themselves.
Shoppers can help themselves to bulk foods such as dried fruit, sugars, beans, nuts, seeds, granola, and even locally roasted coffee. Vinegars, wines, balsamics, olive oils, honey, maple syrup, tamari, molasses, and vanilla extract are also offered in bulk. Suggestions for other products to add to their shelves are always welcome.
Beyond providing the essentials you’ll need for your kitchen, such as spices, herbs, and teas, Living Pantry also has you covered in the bathroom and laundry room. Take your empty containers to their shop and fill them with shampoo, body wash, conditioner, shaving gels, toothpaste and lotion. If you don’t have your own containers, Living Pantry sells reusable containers to get you started.
The store also has products to keep your home smelling fresh, from laundry detergent and cleaning supplies to utensils made from wood, metal, and bamboo. Some of the brands offered include NO TOX LIFE, Nellie’s, Sea Witch Botanicals, and Dr. Bronner’s.
Living Pantry provides an easy way to find sustainable and ethically sourced alternatives for your home and kitchen. Stop by and see for yourself. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and from 12-5 p.m. on Sunday. It is closed on Tuesday. 684 Peace Portal Dr., Blaine, 360.393.4362, livingpantry.com
