the kitchen

Our in-store kitchen pumps out a wide variety of exclusive made in house products. From baked mueslis and granolas, to hummus, hemp bars and mustard. With an entire pantry at our disposal, we are constantly experimenting and adding new items. Made the way food should be, we don't add preservatives or fillers. We just make quality home-style products.

The Roastery

Based on our founding principle of small batch roasting we started roasting our own nuts in 2002. By 2015, we had outgrown our small in-store kitchen and we opened a dedicated Nut Roasting facility. The Roastery now supplies over 100 stores and is still pumping out many products found only at For Good Measure.

a family business from the beginning

For Good Measure is Victoria's original bulk food store.  Started in 1983, what was originally the Cadboro Bay Bulk Food Store, became For Good Measure Premium Bulk Food in 1994.  

We specialize in bulk, natural and specialty foods and our customers buy everything here from fresh produce grown on our family farm and eggs grown on the Saanich Peninsula to dried fruit, BC grown gains and flour, spices, raw nuts and even fresh roasted nuts from our very own nut roastery.

Having grown up in the store, Max Young took over the store in 2013, when his father Mark retired to his farm in Cobble Hill.  Mark can still be found  at the store some mornings with his wife Karen, as they deliver their farm fresh produce sold exclusively at For Good Measure.

In 2002, we built a small kitchen in the back of the store and fired up a cottage nut roasting operation.  Due to popular demand, in 2014 we created Island Nut Roastery to sell our roasted nuts wholesale and in 2015, Island Nut Roastery moved into its own dedicated facility.  While our kitchen at For Good Measure no longer produces roasted nuts for wholesale, it is busy turning out in-house fresh baked bread, baked cereals/granolas, our Hungry Hemp Bars and certain glazed nuts.
