Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company at The Forks Market

Tall Grass Prairie is a bakery located in The Forks Market and sells a wide range of baked goods. From home made breads and delicious treats to sandwiches and jam, this bakery has it all.
I remember when I was a little kid and was taking acting classes at MTYP (Manitoba Theatre for Young People) on Saturdays, my mom would come to pick me up and we would always buy one of the amazing cinnamon sugar beaver tails from the beaver tail place. It was so amazing to watch the man knead the dough, form it into a the shape of a beaver tail, deep fry it, slather it with butter and then shower it with cinnamon sugar. But then one day the beaver tail place closed and my mother and I discovered Tall Grass Prairie bakery. Thus we began a new tradition of buying one of the giant cinnamon buns to share from the bakery.
But let's move beyond that story from memory lane, and focus on all the amazing things that you can find at Tall Grass Prairie. They have a variety of freshly baked loaves of bread, as well as croissants and scones. They also have a wide range of individual squares that you can buy if you're looking for something sweet, like brownies, date squares, and pecan squares. And some of their other treats include things like cookies, pie, and their amazing giant cinnamon buns. The bakery is also very veggie friendly offering veggetarian sandwiches and even a vegan burger and vegan spelt morning glory muffins.
The pre-made sandwiches offered by Tall Grass Prairie. Along with this, they often have a daily lunch special and when we went on Monday it was a veggie quiche.
The famous giant cinnamon buns. The best thing about these probably isn't their size, but the amount of syrup they have in them.
Well that's Tall Grass Prairie for you. I thought about giving you specific directions that would take you right to the bakery, but The Forks Market is so small that all you really need to do is walk around for a while and you'll find it.
