Dig into some plant-based goodness with our entirely vegan summer shopping list! From lunch to snacks to dinner and dessert, we have a wide variety of plant-based products to fill up your cart – and your bellies! Get hungry for summer with some of our favourite Farm Boy items for the cottage, picnics, BBQs, and more. Going vegan has never tasted so good!
Light and satisfying, salads and bowls are an easy option when meal-prepping for lunch. In addition to our extensive salad bar in-store, we also offer chef-prepped options for those living the plant-based life. A few of our faves include our Harvest Grain Salad, Quinoa Bean Salad, and Thai Sweet Potato Salad!
Chilled Sweet Carrot Soup
Who said soup doesn’t belong in the summer? Our new line of chilled summer soups begs to differ! Made in small batches by our chefs, this one is full of delicious carrot flavour and aromatics like ginger, garlic, and lime. An unexpectedly refreshing appetizer or light meal – no heating required!
Comforting, cheesy, and kid-friendly, our new vegan Cheezy Mac also happens to be gluten-free and packed with 18g of protein per serving! For those summer days when the rain cancels your plans, this lunchtime option is as easy as it is satisfying. Try our white cheddar Cheezy Pasta Shells or our Cheezy Mac Elbow Pasta!
What’s a summer shopping list without some chips to munch on? Our line of tortilla chips is made in Ottawa using minimal ingredients and authentic recipes. In addition to being vegan, they also happen to be gluten-free and made without any GMOs! Pro tip: Try the Lime Tortilla Chips dipped in our Spicy Kale Eda-Yummy Dip for a burst of zesty flavour.
If a summer shopping list needs chips, it definitely needs salsa, too! Our Fresh Salsas are made in-store by our chefs and are a seriously necessary item in any grocery cart. In addition to our Hot and Mild flavours, we also have Pico de Gallo, Pineapple Salsa, and Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa!
The #1 winner in our latest Fan Fave Awards, it’s easy to see why this dip has become beloved by vegans and non-vegans alike. It’s a little spicy, a little citrusy, and a whole lot of delicious. Seriously, when you pick this up, buy two. Your future self will thank you.
Maybe your snacking leans more on the sweet side. If so, we’ve got you covered! Made with wholesome ingredients like bananas and oats, our line of vegan muffins is fluffy and flavourful like a good muffin should be. The latest flavour addition this summer is Cranberry Lemon, but we also have faves like Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, and Spiced Carrot!
For the Grill
One of the best parts about summer is grilling and fortunately, we have plenty of plant-based proteins to ensure everyone can enjoy! In addition to our own brand of vegan sausages, we’re also happy to carry delicious alternatives from brands like Gusta and Tofurkey!
The sizzle of a burger on the grill doesn’t have to come from meat when there are so many incredible alternatives out there! Gone are the days of tasteless veggie burgers! Instead, you can sink your teeth into perfectly spiced, protein-packed, plant-based burgs dressed however you’d like!
Like many of the items on this list, what’s vegan also happens to also be gluten-free! Our Gluten-Free Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns come frozen for easy packing, but defrost into something that’s fluffy, soft, and delicious! Free of many common allergens, they’re kid-friendly, too!
At Farm Boy, we’re thrilled to offer a wide array of dairy-free cheese alternatives. Sliced or shredded, in curds or blocks, we have a vegan option that melts, tastes, and looks just like its dairy-filled counterpart. Try a slice of Vegan Swiss or Cheddar on a burger, crumble some chunks of Vegan Feta into a salad, or sprinkle a grilled flatbread with Vegan Shredded Parmesan!
Hand-crafted in small batches, our organic kombucha is an ideal summertime sipper! Helpful in digestion, it can used as an ingredient in cocktails and mocktails (check out a recipe here), or enjoyed all on its own! Be sure to try the Pineapple Coconut flavour, which is only around for the season!
No matter what age you are, we think everyone can agree that lemonade is a quintessential summertime staple. Our own liquid sunshine, it’s made with simple ingredients and without any added colours, flavours or preservatives. Try it in Original, Raspberry, or Strawberry flavours!
To round out your beverage selection, we recommend a little bit of caffeine in the form of our Organic Iced Tea! Sweetened with organic cane sugar and made from organic brewed black tea, simply stack a glass with ice cubes, throw in some lemon wedges, pour, and enjoy!
Is dessert the best meal of the day? When you have as many decadent vegan options as we do, we’d say so! All of our sorbets happen to be totally plant-based, but these brand-new single-size servings are too cute to pass up! Pick up Mango or Raspberry Lemonade and enjoy the entire container all to yourself!
The whole wide world of cookies has opened up at Farm Boy for those who prefer to be plant-based! From Crispy Cookies to classic Cookies to the soft-baked selection available in our Bake Shop, there’s a vegan cookie for every taste and texture!
Celebrate summer, weekends, special occasions, whatever! With cupcakes this good, you don’t need a reason! Soft, fluffy, and topped with a swirl of sweet frosting, they also happen to be free of peanuts and tree nuts! Enjoy them in summery flavours like Lemon and Mixed Berry or stock up on classics like Chocolate and Spiced Carrot!
