The Wandering Market: Food Sourcing From Farm to Folk and Food Education Centre.

We started The Wandering Market eight years ago sharing ideas with high energy and what felt like distant dreams. Originally we had hoped the foods would be from our own farm that we lived on at the time but we couldn’t make it work. Being a farmer is hard. What we realized out of that experience is that there was a niche for us to help the farmers because it is so hard! There are so many obstacles to producing healthy food and they desperately need our support.

We started out marketing our friends amazing pastured eggs and realized that there was a growing market for sustainable, ethically raised foods. From there we had Cam from Sante Fe Foods by Shackleton call and say he had a load of prairie cherries to move. We bought 1000 lbs and grew and grew from there as more and more producers got in touch with us.

I’m so in awe of the magnitude of what has been accomplished simply because of the people out there that are both dedicated to making the foods and the ones that purchase them. I wake up every day inspired by this with the motivation to do more.

Dreams are actualizing and here we are delivering fresh farm foods to hundreds of families directly from farm to folk. And sometimes we get to mow the grass and shovel the poop and pretend like we have our own farm. ❤️

We started out delivering coolers on peoples lawns then we moved into a hole in the wall warehouse for a year to a 15,000 SQF building where we currently are now in Moose Jaw. I can’t believe how far we’ve come and there’s still a long ways to go if we are going to build a healthy, sustainable food culture. There’s so much opportunity for people to get involved. We are looking to connect with food lovers from all walks of life. Purple, green, loud, quiet, striped…. 🤣 lately I have been loving learning about the foods from other peoples cultures. If we go back far enough, we discover that there is a reason for the techniques, the spices and the ingredients. They all have stories and health in mind. I love learning that caraway in many German dishes aids with digestion and prevents bloating. What a valuable thing to know and live! I am so excited to hear more…

Farming to folking,

  1. Hello Nadine,
    We are looking to order again from WM… but this page and others I checked does not link to an order page… or give any direction as to how to re-order. Just thinking it would be better for your business to make this utility or ability more accessible to consumers. Guess I can check the new marketplace function where I first found you.


    1. Hello Richard! Thank you for your comment. Here is the link for the next order. I have updated it on the website as well. Thank you for pointing this out .

      1. Your link takes you to September’s form, and says it’s closed.

  2. When will you be coming to Saskatoon? I have been in touch with Sommer ( to try to get her magnesium spray. She tells me that you may be in Saskatoon soon. Can you call me to let me know? My home #306-934-6843 or text me at 306-280-7751 Thanks. Nina Blandford

  3. This link on your Website is porn!

    1. Hi betty. Please call me at 306-648-8067 and we will connect! 😀


  6. A few weeks ago I got pork hocks supposedly but they are beef shanks not hocks …not impressed and I got charged $30.00 for one sirloin steak kinda expensive. Not I’m sorry I’m not impressed was going to get veggies but at these prices can not afford to eat

    1. Hi Florian.
      The pork hicks should have definitely been hocks. 🤔 unless they got confused at the butcher shop. Please come in for some free hocks.
      The beef steaks are $15 lb for the high end steaks. This is pretty standard for grass fed and finished organic beef. Yes, It’s expensive! I totally agree with you on that one. 😉

  7. Would you consider redoing your pages in a very much lighter colour with print and font that is easier to read.? Check into the fonts that are considered best as there are several. Some of us have very much difficulty with such dark backgrounds and print. Grey print on brown ground …and grey on black .Impossible to see

    1. Yes! Although I don’t see it as grey on black. 🤔 I’ll try changing it. Let me know what you think.

  8. Hello, I would like to talk to you about potentially/possibly supplying you with some of our farm frag items (which the list of is always growing pardon the pun). Right now we have eggs and broilers but will have several more garden items coming as the season progresses. We have a large rhubarb crop, garlic and more. We will also have turkeys in the fal and possibly goat meat and pig. I would love to hear more about how you choose your farmers and how it all works.

    1. Yep, it does look like FOX 59 changed their headline Although the word &qtoh;tosuage" does still appear in the URL… But I can understand not changing the URL, given the desire to not break existing links to the story.

  9. Did I miss my order on the 17th???

  10. Would you like some egg cartons?

  11. What do you have for $50.00 meat pack

  12. Hello I just placed an order for the food box for sept 9th, I would like to know what you want the password for the transfer to be, and how do I add the order form to the message in the transfer.

  13. Nadine,

    Sheila kaiser here. I’ve placed a couple of orders from you in the past couple of months. Facebook message seems to not be working for me. I had sent a message on Friday to see if i could get in on a whole pig. I would like to make a deposit if there is still one available.
