Some of our other delicious bits are available – mostly weekly – yummy items made once a week at our Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company bakery in Wolseley, and maybe twice a week at our bakery at The Forks Market. You will also find a few especially delightful delicacies baked every day of the week, while others are just available on the weekend. This page will tell you – what, when and where.
The influences of the featured morsels come from around the world. Some of the recipes remember the home countries of our staff. Other favourites have been preserved through the traditions of local family kitchens. And then there is the creativity of our bakers!
You’ll find both savoury and sweet taste treats among the choices. Enjoy.
Low in gluten and sugar! Our Breakfast Cookie is the Tall Grass version of the power bar.

Thanks to staff member, Yvonne Hoffer, for bringing her recipe to us. (Mondays through Saturdays at Wolseley & daily at The Forks Market)
What’s in our yummy crostini? Sliced day-old baguettes are combined with Manitoba certified organic cold-pressed sunflower oil, pureed garlic, oregano, rosemary, a bit of paprika, salt and pepper.

Kamut Khorasan wheat is a non-hybridized ancient wheat which was discovered in Egypt. It has a rich nutty flavour, and in comparison to modern wheat has more protein, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. At Tall Grass in Wolseley, we celebrate this grain rather like the Puffed wheat square of days gone by. Cocoa, vanilla, butter, sugar and some syrup make memorable. (Daily at Wolseley)
Remember Rice crispy marshmallow squares as a fond recollection of school lunches, bridal showers and family gatherings? The Tall Grass version may well retrace those bites. Butter, brown sugar and chocolate create a delightfully gooey binding, while dried cranberries add a bit of tart texture. A satisfying snack that is not too sweet. Sometimes also made with rice. (Daily at The Forks Market)
Winner of our unofficial self-described Comfort Food Snack Award, the Tall Grass Cheese Pocket has been a staple of our bakery at The Forks Market for years!

A rich and filling savoury snack – with a regional twist dependent upon your bakery of choice!
