About Our Store
We love our community!
A 'pennyweight' is a common weight used in the measurement of precious metals. We believe that good food, hospitality and supporting local producers is equally precious, so the name pennyweight...wait for it.. just made 'cents' ! (we also love cheesy puns)
Pennyweight Market has been operated independantly since 2017, by three women passionate about food, Manitoba farmers and artists. We love creating relationships with folks who shop our store. (teenagers on lunch break, holding babies for busy moms, high fiving a goal
Bringing producers and customers together, and creating a welcoming space completes our vision of a community store.
OUR LITTLE STORE
so much bigger on the inside
We have a lot going on inside our small general store. We are like kids in a candy shop, with our huge candy island, bins filled with chocolates, and a cafe devoted to ice cream treats. As sweet as this is, a section of our store is devoted to Manitoba made food, and we work hard to fill our bins with a variety of bulk products.
Looking to fill your spice jars? We have a huge selection of bulk spices & herbs to refill your pantry. Party to attend? Ask about our customizeable candy trays! Need a unique gift? A large section of our store is devoted to the work of Manitoba crafters.
We also run workshops and events! Our Saturday Craft n' Coffee, provides an affordable drop in option focused on easy art projects (with a free coffee or tea thanks so much!).
Stop in and stay a while, we look forward to saying hello!
