About Us

from Family Traditions to Your Kitchens

Supplying Alberta with natural, local healthy produce since 2007. We support local farm families and locally made food products.

Our Beginnings

The concept began years ago. Owner/Operator Ivan Smith was working in a pharmacy and noticed a growing concern over antibiotics and hormones in meat. When he took over his grandmother’s farm in 1998, he decided to convert it to raising bison; a meat with a variety of health benefits. The response was overwhelming and the demand for bison prompted Ivan to find a retail outlet for his products.

Big Bend Market South

Supplying Alberta with natural, local, healthy produce since October 2007, Big Bend Market South, located in Southpointe Common, is your full fine meats and fresh cuts deli. We also carry ready to go home-made meals: chicken pot pies, cabbage rolls, perogies, tourtiere, meatballs, stuffed potatoes. Local organic milk, fresh farm eggs, fresh local vegetables and a variety of locally produced products. We truly are your year round farmer’s market!

Big Bend Market North

Our north location specializes in custom orders, wholesale, retail, bulk, and fresh and frozen. It is conveniently located on the north end of Red Deer next to the Bolt Supply Shop on Gaetz & 76th Street. Big Bend Market North opened in 2009 to keep up with the demand and to provide superior meat processing for deer, elk and moose. Let us look after it all, we can use your spices or one of ours. We also offer packaging supplies for those who do-it-yourselves.
