Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company and Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen acknowledge that we are located on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Dakota, and Ininiwak. We would also like to acknowledge the other First Nations such as the Anish-Ininiwak, Dene, and Nehethowuk, who gathered at this ancient site sharing these lands and waterways. We acknowledge that we are on the homeland of the Métis and are grateful to the First Nations of Treaty One who agreed to share this beautiful prairie land, giving us the opportunity to cook and bake for you.

How the story
of Tall Grass began...

We opened Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company in Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood in 1990. The foundation of Tall Grass has always been based on baking with heritage varieties of organic wheat, grown by Manitoba farmers, milling our own flour and baking from scratch.

More than 30 years later, there are two Tall Grass bakery locations: one in Wolseley and the other at The Forks Market, along with Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen.

We use Red Fife wheat in our bakery, a tasty, nutty ancient variety. It joined Spelt, another ancient grain, known for its low glycemic index and lower gluten content. As bakers in the land where we live and work, we consider it an honour to bake with these two ancient grains.

Summer’s here!

People are outside enjoying the weather. Take Tall Grass along as you walk, jog, run, skateboard, bike or drive. Between Tall Grass and Grass Roots we have the makings of a perfect picnic.

Try our:

Savoury dill (Wosleley) / Summer Song (Forks) Bread

A light loaf containing white organic flour with whole wheat, and rye sourdough starter, that combines chives, green onions, parsley, garlic, dill and occasionally asparagus — for a flavour that brings joy to any filling.
(Spring & Summer)


Ham & Swiss cheese croissant

What can you take to that pop-up gathering? A fairly new weekend item on the Tall Grass menu board — this croissant is tasty and satisfying! Yummy when eaten indoors or out.



Inspired by fresh local products and favourite recipes, our salads travel well in their compact plastic containers. Choices vary. They can include Black Bean & Quinoa, Classic Bean, Green, Orzo Sesame and Wild Rice Citrus.


Then there are our summer sweet treats:

Queen Elizabeth cake

This delicious, oh so rich, date-based cake also includes chopped walnuts. Its baked coconut frosting is the perfect pairing for this royal treat. Actually created for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.


Lemon pound cake

Flower-shaped at the Wolseley Bakery, and a lovely loaf at The Forks, our so-o-o lemony pound cakes feature just the right amount of tart. Enjoy!
