Turn a great idea into a thriving business.
Angela Farkas and Alana Fiks started out selling icy treats from a cart at local markets around Winnipeg. Now, they're the owners of Black Market Provisions, a brick-and-mortar store offering homemade food and “rad things” - everything from cards and planters to dishware and floral bouquets. The shop has become a hit with locals, becoming a valued part of a thriving local community.
