maker story
les amis du FROMAGE is a family owned and operated specialty cheese store with two locations in Vancouver. With a carefully curated selection of local and imported cheeses, charcuterie and accompaniments, we also specialize in frozen soups and meals, all made in house using top quality ingredients.

Founded in 1985 by the mother and daughter team of Alice and Allison Spurrell les amis du FROMAGE is proud to still remain a family owned and operated Vancouver company after over 30 years in business. Current owners Allison Spurrell and Joe Chaput have come a long way since the original shoe-box sized store opened in Vancouver's Point Grey neighbourhood.
We believe that collaborating with independent companies in the community is an important next step for the local food movement.

  our VISION
SPUD began as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program in 1997 and has grown its impact on local, organic food one relationship at a time. Over 20 years later, we are still here disrupting the norms of grocery by creating a model where value can be shared between our environment, customers, communities and shareholders. We believe now is the time for SPUD to reach out and share its commitment to innovation and sustainability with other local food makers. Marketplace will allow independent grocers, local artisans and specialty shops to share their passion online with SPUD's systems and best practices.

Our vision for the future looks like this: the physical shop is small, intimate and fully aligned with local needs. It feels special when you walk inside. There is a small inventory in-store and an endless aisle online. People treat going to the store as an experience - spending time to appreciate the product, enjoying a conversation with the owner and indulging in the experience of being a community member.
