Thank you for coming back; this is our seventeenth installment of Vendor Highlights, where we dive in and explore a different vendor each week, allowing you to learn more about them and discover their story and some hidden gems. Today, we would like you to have a glimpse at the story behind Tea Haus:

In 1998, Steph arrived in Canada, where the quest for quality loose-leaf tea proved to be a challenge. Frustrated by the scarcity of options, she began importing teas from Germany. Recognizing the shared struggle of tea enthusiasts, she transformed her journey into a business venture. In 2000, a small kiosk marked the beginning, and Steph’s dedication led her to secure a coveted spot at the Market.

Amidst the vibrant family atmosphere and the joy of returning customers, Steph found her niche. Tea, she discovered, had a remarkable power to unite people. From childhood tales to shared experiences, the Market became a hub for memories. The Tea Haus, Steph’s venture, now boasts over 250 teas, adapting to seasons and special occasions. Surprisingly, Earl Grey remains a timeless favorite.

Looking ahead to 2024, Steph dreams of further growth, aspiring to strengthen community bonds, one cup of tea at a time.

Vendor highlights are all about shining a spotlight on the heart and soul of each vendor and learning more about the who, the what and the why around their story. If you’ve enjoyed this journey, join us again next week for another vendor and a new highlight as we continue celebrating the outstanding contributors that make our Market a genuinely magical place
