Local chickpeas and lentils

I've just discovered a neat little shop on Central Avenue in Sutherland which stocks a good supply of Saskatchewan-grown lentils and chickpeas under the label Kashmir Valley. The store is called Medina Foods and Halal Meats. (Halal food is prepared according to Islamic law). It's small but friendly and full of things you won't find in a regular grocery store. As for Kashmir Valley, it's packaged and sold by Diefenbaker Seed Processors of Elbow. Medina Foods is at 800 Central Avenue (the NW corner of Central and 108th).

Cool! I didn't know you could get DSP product at Medina.

They stock Mother's Recipe pickled vegetables...try some of them...the Madras Onion is a favorite at my house.
