Maize Foods

Our stone-ground, local maize foods are currently available at select farmers’ markets, special events, and to take home from our store at 1131 St. Clair Avenue West. Because our masa (maize dough for tortillas) is made fresh, we require one week’s notice to prepare fresh masa or tortillas for order.

All of our products are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, and preservative-free.

Tortillas

Our tortillas are made fresh to order with our nixtamalised, non-GMO white corn grown in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. We are also currently experimenting with a local purple corn variety. Try our tortillas for tacos, quesadillas, tortilla pizzas, tostadas, and more.

Our Tortilla Pizzas are served at Evergreen Brickworks during the summer market season

Tamales

Our FeastON certified tamales are made with non-GMO, local purple corn from Chatham-Kent, Ontario, and filled with a bean or lentil mole made from local, organic ingredients. We serve our tamales open-face and topped with salsa, pickled cabbage, fresh organic greens, and toasted pepitas, this meal has all the key elements to a good dish: soft, crunch, spice, fresh, tangy, and savoury.

Power Cookies

Our famous Cacao Maize Power Cookies are a staple at our store and farmers’ markets. You can also find them at Bolt Fresh Bar. These soft, brownie-like cookies are made from our non-GMO, local corn dried and blitzed into a flour, amaranth flour, chia seeds, black bean mole, coconut oil, 100% chocolate, and sweetened with a touch of agave. Finally, we place a square of our 65% Vanilla Sea Salt chocolate on top of each cookie for that extra bite of sweetness.
