Photos by Deanna Ladret“I wanted to create a community store for real people,” says Candace Bath, owner of the recently opened Tin Roof Market & Deli in Cook Street Village. Sitting at one of the market’s bistro tables with a cup of their 99 cent Creekmore’s Coffee she continues, “Just healthy, clean products in a positive place where everyone can shop.” After purchasing Ambrosio Market last summer, Bath began to transition the space towards her personal vision – one, she admits, is evolving slowly with the store itself. Bath eventually reopened as The Tin Roof Market & Deli last October. Candace Bath, owner of the recently opened Tin Roof Market & DeliThe Tin Roof sources local produce and dry products whenever Bath can offer a good price for customers. She points out that though most people would prefer to shop locally and organic, for some families it’s simply not affordable 100% of the time. The Tin Roof’s stock represents a well-balanced variety favouring local and healthful products alongside more conventional items at a cost comparable to most grocery stores. The market also sells housemade sausages and frozen entrées, rotisserie chicken from Cowichan Bay, thin crust pizza by the slice (including a gluten-free option), and custom paninis. They are licensed, offering a small selection of beer and wine for customers stopping by for a quick bite. A small self-serve cheese and olive section was created for picnickers looking to assemble a takeout lunch en route to Beacon Hill or Dallas Road beaches. Now that spring is here, The Tin Roof has several racks of Vancouver Island spray-free herbs and plants for sale from Outrageous Edibles & Bedibles such as orange mint, French tarragon, and African blue basil, as well as a variety of perennials and veggies. Bath is also now the proud owner of a state-of-the-art frozen yogurt machine, which blends fresh orchard fruit into the frozen yogurt to order. She hopes the cool and healthy treat will be an extra draw this coming summer when their small patio opens out front.
