Canada Day Issue – We’re OPEN Canada Day! Salt Spring Kitchen Recipes, Shopping List

Life without liberty is like a body without spirit. – Kahlil Gibran

Dear Customers,

We feel fortunate to live and thrive in such a spectacular country, and while far from perfect, we should be proud to celebrate the many freedoms, widespread acceptance of other’s differences and relative peace that we enjoy today.

This Canada Day lets safely get together with those we love, sing a song and raise a glass to our great fortune of being a Canadian in one of the greatest countries in the world.

While shopping for the holiday consider stopping at Herma’s. Open 7 days a week….

Herma’s will be open Canada Day 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
