“Located a short 15min walk or 6min drive (2km) from our BnB~ 'The Mustard Seed sprouted from a deep-rooted love for Hamilton, a passion for food, and a strong desire to see essential food needs met in our downtown community. Our mission is: To provide the community with a member-owned and operated grocery store that offers a bountiful selection of wholesome foods, prioritizes local producers, and creates an educational environment that nurtures the relationship between people and the food they eat.
