Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company
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.
Pre-paid pickup and delivery orders
We welcome you to our bakeries for in-person shopping, and also continue to offer pre-paid and delivery service at both our locations. Choose your most convenient bakery below!

We use electric, hybrid-electric, hybrid-propane and vegetable oil powered vehicles. A small 4-cylinder gasoline van with a large load capacity is used when required.
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.
