Created July 01, 2011 at 3:47 PM

Hello.

I will be moving from Norway to New Brunswick in Canada to study for a year. Is there anyone here from that area? How do you get your meats, veggies etc? Is there any shops/gyms I should check out?

I will be living in Fredericton if all turns out as planned.

Lars

Hi! I'vw been buying meat at riverview market in charlottetown - they have small farm raised naturalmeat they say it's 90% grassfed.Bluefield meats in northriver has similar.... they grain finish their beef.I'm going to check out a farmer close to me -Robert Hughes - Millcove... he has grassfed beef and sells direct from the farm.Ramond Loo of Springwillow Farms sells at the Charlottetown Farmers Market - his beef is grassfed and very good. There are other good meats at the farmers market - lamb , poultry pork.... and freerange eggs. I'll ave to check out Pleasant Pork - sounds good!

Hey Colleen! I'm in PEI too (most of the time anyways). Who's the grassfed farmer? I'm trying to convince my parents to get 1/4 cow while I'm home. Does Pleasant Pork go to the Ch'Town market? I know he comes to the S'Side one in the summer. Best pork around.

Actually from the west coast to the east coast :) I'm living on the Vancouver islands right now. So, you do have easy access to gf meat? That is great. Farmer's market also sounds very good. Well, having you being able to live this lifestyle there, makes me optimistic that I won't have to give up anything, thank you! What do you think is the biggest challenge for you living there in terms of living primal/paleo?

Cool. From where? Paleo life is good from my perspective, but I guess it depends what you're used to. We have a great farmers' market, lots of local GF beef and poultry, pretty good supply of fresh fish. If you're a CFer, I think there are a couple of small gyms, you're never more than 10 minutes from the ocean / wilderness, no Whole Foods-type stores but the local groceries have pretty decent "natural foods" sections. Most of my friends have heard of the paleo approach, but I'm the only one I know doing it. What more can I tell you? What kinds of things are you looking for specifically?

I'm from Halifax, Nova Scotia - about 5 hours from Fredericton. I know there's a pretty good farmers' market Saturday mornings, and I remember seeing local grass-fed beef there a couple of years ago. Finding someone with moose shouldn't be too hard either.

On the paleo-social side, The Snooty Fox Pub has some of the best ribs I've had in Eastern Canada.

Enjoy.

In new Brunswick, its called Moose hunting.

If you don't like to hunt, you find someone that likes to hunt and you get a freezer full of meat.

I'm from Moncton, NB, Canada. As Josh M mentioned, the thread on marksdailyapple is really interesting, and I see items very similar to ours. We buy most of our meat from Springbrook farms, and you can actually buy beef boxes in 1/8 increments of a cow. For our veggies, we subscribed to a CSA box from Windy Hill Farm and we'll get 20 weeks of veggies this summer. In the winter we buy most of our veggies from the farmer's market, though it's not all local produce, but we prefer to support local businesses as much as possible.

I have a feeling that Fredericton will be very similar to Moncton in terms of Farmer's Market and local farmers.

I hope you'll enjoy - keep us posted!
