The newly opened For Goodness Bake brings vegan food and drink products from vendors around the city into one retail space, making it a one-stop shop for vegan fare in Calgary. Owners Sam Van Osch and Josh Bachynski decided to open For Goodness Bake after realizing they were having a hard time supporting their favourite vegan businesses due to varying business hours and locations, product availability and overall convenience.

“We just wanted one place where we could find everything we were looking for,” says Bachynski. “We figured other people were in the same boat, as well.”

Located in the Kingsland neighbourhood, For Goodness Bake currently carries vegan products, “meats” and baked goods from more than 20 different businesses, including Veghammer, Canela Bakery, Bohomylk and more. The owners also source one-off vegan products. “It’s really cool when a company that isn’t completely vegan just has one vegan product they want to get into the market,” says Bachynski. For Goodness Bake makes it easier for vegans to find products that fit their lifestyle, all in one convenient spot.

For Goodness Bake is also helping make vegan food more accessible through its commercial kitchen space, which is available to rent. There are currently four vendors working out of the ghost kitchen, which is one of the only fully vegan commercial spaces for rent in Calgary. Vendors can then sell their product in the storefront.

For Goodness Bake is celebrating its grand opening on November 13 and will be serving sandwiches, tea and coffee.
