You may not have tried their veggies, but you've definitely seen their tote bags. Lufa Farms, the brainchild of entrepreneur Mohamed Hage, delivers approximately 30,000 baskets of fresh produce per week and other locally-sourced groceries to families across the Island of Montreal.

The Marché has just introduced its own food brand, Proudly Different, which it calls "the first-ever brand of fully repurposed food products in Canada."
