Winds of Change!

We have been hard at work developing some exciting changes at La Merceria, and we just can't wait to share all with you, so we thought we would give you a sneak peak of what's to come,  As many of you already know we have developed our own blend of coffee with beans grown in Colombia and roasted in Canada, this was always our dream and we are so excited to finally make it a reality, we are in the process of completing our new signage, and at your request we will be introducing retail packages very soon so that you can take the experience home whenever you want! Thank-you to all our customers who participated in the tastings and for given us your seal approval on this amazing change!

Weekend Pleasures: One of & Kind Show + Carrot Cake!

When you are a shop owner sometimes the line between work & play gets blurry, but yesterday was truly a fun family day sourcing new products for the store, we ventured to the One of a Kind Show and it was such a delight how baby friendly it was, there was lots of aisle space for the stroller and even gourmet mashed potatoes for Joaquin!
We met ceramist Hugo Didier from "Not made in China" and he is going to develop a special line for us, I can't wait to show you :)
We will also be carrying  the line of accessories by Jenna Rose, we think it will be a match made in Merceria heaven! 
And to reward ourselves for our hard work at the show we finished the day La Merceria with Juan's famous carrot cake, yum! if you haven't tried it yet please  do, it will change your life :)
