Shop The Forks Market — from your couch!

Posted on Mar 18, 2020 by The Forks Market

As we all adjust with the sudden changes in our lives as a result of social distancing, it's easy to lose sight of how much local businesses are impacted by these closures.

Luckily for you, many Forks Market businesses are still operating online shops, so you can still take home a little piece of The Forks Market while helping do your part in flattening the curve. We've put together a list of these online shops to help you continue to support local business:

Stay cozy while you practice social distancing with one of Coal and Canary's signature scents. Transport yourself to summer nights at the lake with scents like Big Hair & Fresh Air or Great Complexion & No Reception or get in the mood for spring with scents like Crop Tops & Rain Drops or Sweet Perfumes & Lilac Blooms.

While you're at it, why not enter their colouring contest for a chance to have your dream scent poured into a special limited-edition candle!

Working from home doesn't have to mean wearing the same pair of sweats every day. In fact, research has shown that keeping a routine (including getting dressed like you're headed into the office) can help with productivity!

Look your best at your home office desk (whether that happens to be your couch or kitchen table) with something from dconstruct Jewelry's online store. Need another reason to treat yourself to some handcrafted jewelry? Everything in their store is currently 30% off!

Depending on who you ask, wine is either pretty low or pretty high on the list of needed supplies when you're practicing social distancing. If you ask us, it's the latter.

Ellement Wine + Spirits is offering free citywide delivery and is taking orders by phone or email. They're also available through SkipTheDishes to satisfy your vino needs.

When having a group of people over isn't an option, what better company is there to have than a cast of great characters in a good book? Lose yourself in an engrossing novel or order a puzzle or game to help pass the time with your loved ones at home. As Canada's largest independent bookstore, they have plenty of all of the above.

Shekhman Furs

While warmer is just over the horizon, it's never a bad time to invest in some quality winter wear. Shekhman Furs specializes in premium quality, handcrafted fur hats and accessories — all made right here in Canada. Order something now and you'll be all set for next winter at The Forks!

No social distancing snack stockpile is complete without some sweets. Jenna Rae Cakes is still shipping out macaron gift boxes and scented candles. Send one to yourself or to someone in need of a sweet pick-me-up!

One of the biggest things we'll miss with The Market's temporary closure is persuing the endless shelves at Forks Trading Company and ooh-ing and ahh-ing over all the amazing Canadian- and locally-made products.

While their online store doesn't have quite the same stock as their Market space, there's still plenty of social distancing essentials available like Morden's chocolates, blankets, candles and handcrafted crib boards.
