June 2015 New Business

Crumbs Cakery & Café
562 2 Ave #1

Crumbs Cakery & Cafe owners are excited to announce the opening of their new storefront on 2nd Avenue in Fernie. While opening the storefront is
new, Crumbs Cakery is not. Amy Cardozo and Jeremy Gibson previously operated Crumbs Cakery Elk Valley out of a small, health inspected kitchen in their basement in Sparwood for three years. Their kitchen seemed to get smaller with the increase of custom cake orders each passing year. During a walk downtown Fernie in February, Amy and Jeremy saw the perfect spot to open their storefront. It was exactly then that Crumbs Cakery & Café was born.

Crumbs Cakery & Café specializes in wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and cupcakes. They are also well known for their cinnamon buns and cookies. In addition to desserts, they are now offering a deli-style lunch menu featuring Jamaican curry patties, savoury hand pies, soups, salads, and sandwiches. Everything is made in house from scratch!

Spruce Spring Stream Farms
661 Hartley Lake Rd

Jeremy and Rebecca are pleased to announce a new local farm in Fernie! Spruce Spring Stream Farms is a small off the grid, organic practising, permaculture farm. They sell a variety of greens, root vegetables, peas, beans, free run eggs and herbs, but the top crop is garlic. Spruce Spring's goal is to give you quality
produce with outstanding flavour using only what mother nature has given us. Look for them at the Fernie Market this summer and like their page on Facebook – Spruce Spring Stream Farms, to find out the latest news of what is ready to harvest and how the farm is progressing.
