Do you love healthy, organic and plant based locally sourced food?
Then you will want to check out Buddha Full Provisions in Lower Lonsdale. They are located beside the famous Instagram spot Fun Alley and there is a patio for summer vibes and indoor seating that is welcoming and spacious.
We spoke with Geremie Voigt who is the co-founder of the vegan food establishment to learn more about him and the business for our readers. Many of you will have already been here to eat or drink as they are pretty well known in the community, often attending events at The Shipyards and other areas of North Vancouver with their double decker bus.
Why did you choose North Vancouver to operate Buddha Full and what do you love most about it here?
North Vancouver has been our home for over 20 years. We wanted our community to have a place that offered healthy plant based foods that heal and inspire!
What are the most popular menu items that you are selling currently and our readers should know about?
Our Smoothies have always been a favourite, the Lobo is a long time staple. (10 years) it’s a thick and creamy blend of peanut butter and banana with hemp protein. Also our Buddha-Bowls are very popular. Bohemian soul is a power packed bowl of nutrients. Anti-inflammatory turmeric and tahini sauce with house made 1 month ferments, roasted and raw vegetables, cashew cream on organic California rice.
How do you find that the local transportation system(s) impact your workflow or employees?
Our staff are mostly local North Vancouver residents so many commute by foot, however the transit system impacts our staff a lot by ways of arrival in the morning and what time they leave at night. This is even more of a priority at our Northwoods location.
What are some of the first questions that new customers like to ask you?
What is the healthiest item to eat? What smoothie is the best tasting? Is everything really 100% vegan? We get asked these all the time!
In your personal time outside of business operations, what do you get up to for activities locally?
I love hiking with my dogs on the North Shore trails, Paddle boarding in Deep Cove and I practice Yoga at Maa Yoga.
Is there anything else that you might want our readers to know about you or Buddha Full?
We really value our customers and love what we do. Our goal is to offer inspiring plant based foods that make you feel good and offer your body amazing nourishment. Check out our double decker bus at festivals!
Lastly, what are the best ways for new customers to get in contact?
Customers can come on down to our store location in Lower Lonsdale at 106 West 1st Street or visit our website, also connecting on Instagram and Facebook. Plus you can find us at local festivals and events with our double decker bus which is pictured in the article below. Come say hi!
