Gluten Free Food
Buying groceries that are gluten free can often mean weeding through all kinds of food before finding any without gluten. Those with allergies and celiac diseases know exactly how challenging this can be. At Vested Interest we offer plenty of gluten free options so you can narrow down your search.
Categories of gluten free food include, but are not limited to: salad dressings, marinades, wraps, nuts, pre-packaged meals, cluster snacks, granola, rice, pasta noodles, snack bars, soup broths, chips, spreads, oils, beans, sauces, and more!
While we do offer refrigerated and ready-made items, many of our gluten free offerings are non-perishable, ensuring a longer shelf life for you to enjoy.
Even without allergies or other food-related disorders, many people prefer to buy gluten free foods. This is of course, up to the consumer. Gluten free products provide just as many nutrients as products with gluten in it, so you’re not missing out on any important ingredients.
Some are hesitant to seek out gluten free foods, as they believe that there are not enough options out there, or that they may not taste as good. These are both myths that can easily be disproved when you see our large selection of tasty gluten free foods. You’ll be amazed at the level of variety that can be found in gluten free foods, and you’ll likely find yourself using them as cooking staples.
Many of our gluten free options are also vegan and keto friendly, so be sure to check out the ingredients of any products you’re interested in purchasing. If you’re unsure of what’s in certain products, ask us, we’ll be happy to help.
Vegan foods can be difficult to find, or are often limited to a small section at the grocery store. When you shop at Vested Interest for vegan foods, you’ll find a wide selection of products, many of which are locally sourced. Gone will be the days of searching the limited aisles of the grocery store for the vegan products you’ve been looking for. We have just what you’re looking for.
We recognize the importance of adhering to a plant based diet, but also doing so in a way that meets your nutritional needs. Many of the products we carry are healthy, tasty choices. Many of the foods we sell come pre-packaged in sealed bags, jars, and containers, so you can count on food purchased from us to last for a long time, without worry of having to keep them cold.
We offer a wide variety of vegan products such as sauces, nuts, legumes, wraps, granola, soups, oils, and even some candies! That’s just a short list of all of our offerings. Check out our inventory to see all of the vegan products we carry.
Please feel free to ask our staff to show you our wide variety of Vegan foods in our food room! We are always happy to help.

For those unaware: Keto is an incredibly low-carb diet. Many people have found this diet helpful for burning fat. Others have tried it because it makes them feel better and healthier.

We offer keto foods such as wraps, clusters, granolas, milks, rice, snack bars, pastas, pre-made meals, and much more! Many of our keto offerings are also vegan and gluten-free. Be sure to check the ingredients of each product before purchasing.
Much like our vegan offerings, many of our products are non-perishable and come in eco-friendly packaging, including sealed bags, jars, and containers. Buying eco-friendly packaged food is a great way to eliminate as much waste as possible, as many of these packages are reusable or recyclable.

Root furniture is a beautiful, unique, and high-quality option for your home. Root furniture is made from natural and recycled materials such as branches, tree roots, pallets, wood, and more.
There are plenty of different types of furniture that can be made from these materials, including chairs, tables ,night stands, benches, shelves, displays, and even bed frames. Depending on the piece you get, root furniture can often be used both indoors and outdoors, in warm or cold climates.
Root furniture is incredibly strong and built to last. No piece of root furniture is like any other, so any root furniture you own is 100% unique. Root furniture gets the job done, and also makes for an impressive conversation piece when visitors see it.
Root furniture is often uniquely shaped due to the use of stumps, branches, twisted wood and roots. They’re typically on the more unusual side in terms of appearance, but in a way that’s still incredibly appealing to the eyes. You’ll love your one of a kind root furniture, and so will your guests.
As a result of its unique build and sustainable manufacturing process, root furniture is an incredibly interesting type of furniture, both for those who know more about it, and those who are less familiar with the concept.

Teak furniture is an excellent eco-friendly outdoor furniture option. Known for its incredibly long lifespan, teak furniture is able to resist the elements. If you’re looking for outdoor furnishings for your patio or backyard, teak is an excellent high-quality option. There are many imitation-teak products on the market, but you can be assured that when you buy teak from Vested Interest, you’re purchasing the real deal.
The beautiful buttery gold colour of teak furniture pairs well in any outdoor setting. Bugs, water, and rot won’t be a problem when you own teak furniture. This is due to its naturally occurring oils and rubber. Teak furniture is an excellent investment as once you own it, you’ll see enough of the benefits to never want to replace it.
Teak furniture is often sustainably sourced and eco-friendly. Maintaining teak furniture is incredibly easy, and they often only need to be cleaned about once a year, depending on how much dirt, dust and stains find their way onto your furniture. Different finishes require different types of cleaning solution, and in some instances, oils. It’s important to know what’s required to take care of your teak furniture and keep it in top shape.
Teak is an incredibly adaptable wood, which is what allows it to be so durable and weather-resistant. There’s a good reason why it’s able to be left outside from season to season, which is why so many people choose to invest in a good set of teak furniture. Try it for yourself, you’ll soon see what all the hype is about.
If you prefer to own older furniture, you’re in luck when you shop with us. We carry antique furniture, which always makes for an excellent addition to your home. Shopping for antique furniture versus new furniture is a great choice for two reasons.
First of all, most antique furniture is still here because it was built to last. The craftsmanship that went into these items still show to this day. They tend to last longer than some newer furniture. Second of all, it’s much more eco-friendly to buy pre-owned furniture versus new, mass produced furniture. This also means keeping antique furniture out of landfills. Why get rid of something that still works? With antique furniture, you’ll feel comforted knowing you have a strong piece of furniture, and you’re being eco-friendly by keeping it in your home.
Furniture often purchased new requires assembly after you take it home. This can often be time consuming and even sometimes confusing. When you purchase our antique pre-built furniture, you can simply pack it up, bring it home, and use it immediately.
Antique furniture is also beneficial when it comes to furnishing your home with “trend proof” products. Antique furniture can be incredibly versatile and timeless, allowing it to easily adapt to any other styles you may already have in your home. When it comes time to do some updating around the house, it’s likely you won’t find the need to switch out your antique furniture, due to its staying power.
At Vested Interest, you’ll find it all. Antique beds, seats, tables, night stands, and other furnishings from years past. Many of these pieces are handmade and custom, so whatever you pick up will be a unique piece in your living room, bedroom, kitchen, or anywhere else you place it. Shop with us to own a piece of history.
Shopping for others is difficult, especially if you may not know what the perfect gift is for certain people. At Vested Interest, we have plenty of gift ideas for all occasions.
One of our most popular gift options is our gift baskets. Our gift baskets can be custom made using any in-stock product, or you can also choose one of our pre-made options. Gift baskets are a great option for both times when you’re unsure of what to get someone, or when you know exactly what someone would want, and would like to give them multiple items in one package.
If you’re not looking to give a gift basket, we also offer gift bags too. These are a great option when you’re looking to buy something smaller, yet still full of great products your recipient will love. These are especially popular for special occasions like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but can also be given at any time.
While gift baskets and bags are two great options to help you in the gift buying process, any item in our store makes a great gift. If you have a food lover in your life, we sell many food sets that make a great gift idea. We offer an array of gluten-free, vegan, keto friendly and more options if your recipient has any intolerance. Our large selection of home decor items make for a great housewarming gift. Candles and bath & body sets are also relaxing options. These are just a few examples of gift ideas, but there is so much more in our store that may end up being the perfect gift for your recipient. You won’t know until you check us out!

What a great store. Maybe one of the most eclectic stores in Northern Ontario. So much sourced ethically from Bali. Great snacks, BBQ ribs and hot sauces, salsas and teak furniture. It's worth coming back every week.
"This is from a small business owner to another. I went to Vested Interest Trading today after a friend had mentioned you guys sell gluten free foods and dairy free items. My wife has a lot of intolerance. This was my first time visiting your store, we have owned Callander Gas Bar for over 2 years now but we didn't live in the area and never knew about your store. We have moved to North Bay on May 15th, so I went in to have a look around. I was greeted by a young lady named Olivia, very pleasant from the time I entered the store, in my 41 years I have never and I mean never had a more pleasant shopping experience in my life. Olivia was very professional, kind, helpful and knowledgeable about your products. She has definitely gained your business another regular customer, I truly wish I could receive service like I did at your store in more places. At the end of my shopping she even carried my basket down to the cash. I was honestly blown away by the service she provided for me today, please note I'm not one that goes out of his way to give reviews but during these trying times for all small businesses I really felt the need to bring this to your attention. We always hear about the bad and the ugly. Not as much of the positive feedback, I felt the need to bring this to your attention and hopefully it puts a smile on your face. You have an amazing employee there who seems to enjoy the atmosphere and that doesn't happen without having a great boss and coworkers. Keep up the great work, you will be seeing us on a regular basis."
