February 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

A healthy mind…a healthy imagination?

Perhaps… though based on history, artistic genius doesn’t appear to be directly related to nutrition nor healthy life habits..in fact, many of history’s great artists’ colorful lives prove quite the opposite!

In any case, for those students & visitors in Haliburton interested in health food stores & local produce, this ones for you! 


In a new & bigger location on Hwy 118, just west of the village of Haliburton. Marty’s packs the one-two punch of a full array of health foods for you and yours pets, supplements and personal products AND a full supply of yarns, patterns and fibre. Owners Rolf and Marty are the helpful smiling faces behind the counter, always there to offer a helpful suggestion or an honest product review. Contact them at 705-457-3216.


Located just 20 minutes down the road, in the river town of Minden, Organic Times  is named for its new-ish residency in the old Minden Times Newspaper office. With a beautiful tin ceiling, wooden display units and a first-class bulk food system, Organic Times never made health food look so good! Owner Deborah Lyons and her helpful staff are always on hand for health queries and a bit of town gossip. Find them just over the bridge on Bobcayegon St 705-286-1424.



A local listing service, Haliburton Fresh posts contact information for all farms and food producers within Haliburton County. Producers are identified not only by name but by product and location. As well, the locations for local farmer’s markets are posted, including the Haliburton County Farmer’s Market in Carnarvon on Friday nights from June-September.

Eating healthy and supporting local….mmmm!
