Lunch Box – Fresh Market & Smoothie Bar is scheduled to be open around December 8. Located in downtown Fernie across from the TD Bank, this new establishment is keen to serve people on the go something quick. As an extremely busy mom and business woman, owner Marsha Churchill knows the value of time and often appreciates convenience. Lunch Box will specialize in homemade soups, salads, sandwiches and wraps, and will also offer a full smoothie, juice and wheatgrass menu. You won’t find deli meat here because all of their meat is smoked and roasted in-house. Enjoy a homemade sandwich or customize your salad or wrap, including homemade dressings and sauces… everything is from scratch.
