Welcome to Fireweed Market
Sustainable Living By NEAT
The Fireweed Market is a unique shopping experience that is growing in the space between first world consumerism and sustainable community building. Like it’s namesake, the Fireweed Market is first to appear, paving the way for new growth, new hope, and a new future.
Fireweed Market is NEATs newest endeavour to provide easy, sustainable product choices to our community at large. Our aim is to provide functional zero waste lifestyle choices, and offer practical skills development through workshops while building knowledge and capacity in our customers and the community, all while helping to grow and incubate local producers, artisans and businesses.

Our service suite will be opened over a few months following the retail opening with plans to offer workshops or educational opportunities that will complement Fireweed market products (i.e. How to grow your own micro-greens at home). More over Fireweed will work in tandem with NEAT to offer a variety of additional sustainability sessions to help you pursue a greener lifestyle. These offerings may include Bee Keeping 101, electric vehicles, conscious consumerism, solar power and more Nature based programming.
The Re-tool Lending Library
Our lending library is here to help you follow your passions and create. We offer the ability to borrow kitchen tools such as canning and processing equipment, mixers, chaffing trays, slow cookers and more for a daily fee. This maximizes the usefulness of each tool and minimizes the space it takes up on your counter tops.

Non-members = $25/day + $50 deposit
**Availability of machines & tools will be on a first come first serve basis.
Fireweed is not just a place to purchase but also a place to learn about your purchases. A place to share ideas and experiences. Thats why we’v created a book exchange in our store, providing a place for customers to rest, visit and network with others as well as the ability to borrow books on specific topics you may be interested in or that pertain to the creation or skills development you are trying to develop.
This is a great place to re-use your cookbooks, gardening books, canning books, novels, and other informative reading materials.
**The book exchange runs off of donations, if you have books on baking, recipes, canning, farming, producing, sewing, household electrical repairs, baby/parenting books, etc, that you’re no longer using please consider donating them here. Thank you **
As our store begins to grow our services will grow in tandem. With plans to offer seasonal boxes with pre-packaged recipes, seasonal project kits and monthly workshop opportunities we have a lot on the docket.
