Halifax’s First Vegan Butcher shop

Opening Mid December!!!!!


Opening this december

Stay tuned for announcements of our butcher boxes. Currently we are not taking any special orders or wholesale orders until our store is open.

How it works

Sometimes eating a plant-based diet requires more work and planning in the kitchen. We are here to take a bit of the pressure off. Once a month we will be creating a perfect assortment of healthy veggie "meats" and "cheeses" that you can either pick up or have delivered right to your door (Within the Halifax Peninsula). We will be switching up products every month to keep things interesting. As we grow the business we will continue to add new exciting products and recipes.

We will also have a store font open to the public 5 days a week starting in December at 2278 Gottingen St, in Halifax. You will be able to come visit, talk with the chefs and enjoy the environment of a cruelty free butcher shop.

Who we are

We are a couple of buds based out of the North End of Halifax, NS. We are creating fun, delicious plant-based "meats" and "cheeses". Currently working on our very own kitchen so we can supply more of our demand!

Lauren Marshall - a trained chef from the Culinary Institute of Canada and Top Chef alumni works with talented employees on creating delicious veggie based “meats” and “cheese”.

Balance & Brunch Club

Once a month we are all going to get together, do mindfulness practice in a cool space and eat a seasonal brunch together family style. A great opportunity to get to know people in your community. Sharing food is just as powerful as sharing your mindfulness practice.

Hosted by Kyla Mackinnon of Shanti and Chef Lauren Marshall from Real Fake Meats and Coastal Healing Retreats. Space is limited and will sell fast so book as soon as you can. We cant wait to share this experience with you.

You will have 60 minutes of gentle flow & mindfulness practice followed by a delicious meal featuring Real Fake Meats exclusive products. Sip on delicious coffee from the shop (or tea) and a featured beverage. This event will be held at the Tare Shop, Halifax’s first zero waste bulk store and cafe.

**Please bring your own mat & water bottle. Everything else will be provided.

Next Date is Sunday, January 6th.

Session 1 is at 8:30am. Yoga is followed by brunch at 9:30am.

Session 2 is at 9:30 am. Your session will start with brunch and be followed by yoga.
