Marché Laflamme stocks local coffee roasters and launches their in-house sausages
Local grocery store Marché Laflamme has started selling made-in-house sausages.
“The store received its sausage machine two weeks ago,” said Marc-André Fafard, the butcher shop manager. “The sausages have no preservatives and are made with top-quality ingredients.”
“The sausages are made in-house, with 100% Canadian meat, and contain spices mixed in Montreal,” continued Fafard. “We started selling them last week and nearly sold out. They are very popular with our customers.”
On February 26, the local grocery store opened their new Brown Bag Coffee Roasters (BBCR) coffee bean station. BBCR is a local artisanal coffee roaster company located at 1910 Chem. Pink, Suite 106.
“The collaboration is amazing; it means a lot to us,” said Shann Bosnell, owner of BBCR. “It allows us to better extend our product to our customers and service the local community. The respect Marché Laflamme has in the community makes us feel like we definitely have the right partner.”
Store manager, Myriam Laflamme, says the coffee bean station at the store had stocked another name brand coffee but it didn’t work well. They stocked the bags of Brown Bag Coffee Roasters but decided to switch the beans in the coffee station to the local artisan coffee roasters to support another local business.
“We wanted to stock coffee from a local business and products that came from here. We reached out and we made it happen” said Laflamme, “They chose their best and most popular roasts to stock at the station and created the labels. It’s been very popular with customers; they are enjoying the product.”
BBCR was named best coffee roaster of the year in the Ottawa-Gatineau area by Third Wave Coffee awards.
