The Buy-Local Mentality is Sweeping the Nation This Holiday Season

Did you hear the good news? This holiday season more Canadians are adopting a buy-local mentality, even online. 73% of online shoppers are planning to buy holiday gifts from Canadian retailers instead of buying from US or international websites, according to a study from PayPal and Ipsos. As local pork farmers, we distribute our free-range pork products exclusively across Alberta. We’ve experienced first hand the power of consumer habits and we couldn’t be more pleased to know that Canadians are opting to support local businesses, which will in turn strengthen our local economies.

We recommend starting your holiday shopping at the farmers markets. There are so many unique gifts to be discovered, and each purchase you make will be strengthening your community at the same time. The staff members are knowledgeable and will ensure you find the one-of-a-kind gift for that special someone in your life. Not only will you skip the long line-ups and crazy crowds, but you’ll also have the opportunity to connect with community members and local producers.

Above all else, don’t forget to take good care of you during this busy season. The greatest gift you can give yourself and others is a nutritious home cooked meal. Whether you’re looking to purchase a ham, crown roast, tenderloin or ribs for your holiday feast, we’re happy to be your pork provider of choice during this special time of the year.

Our pork products can be found at various farmers markets and retail locations, but if you fall in with the 73% mentioned above, you can also make purchases through our virtual store.

About Spragg’s Meat Shop Spragg’s Meat Shop is a family-owned and operated business located in Rosemary, Alberta. Greg and Bonnie Spragg raise hogs, process, and market their pork products direct to Albertan consumers. Spragg’s works hard to produce the best pork for Albertans, from the day the pigs are born, to the day the pork chops are cut, bacon is smoked, and the roast is marinated. The Spragg family hopes that you get as much enjoyment eating their pork as they do getting it to your table.
