Hey Vancouver, as you know we have all sorts of guides and lists and it’s time to use those for good. So today we’re going to be making a list of black-owned businesses right here in the city that you can and should support right now. So without further adieu, here are 8 black-owned businesses in Vancouver to support right now and in the future.
As we all know, Vancouver is a healthy city. And so holistic nutritionists help a lot of people keep up the hard work of remaining healthy. So if you’re looking for a holistic nutritionist we highly recommend checking out Sade. And she has a talk coming up on June 4th that you should definitely check out!
And while we’re on the topic of all things health and nutrition, we have to also mention Akeem Pierre. He has Rich Sol Foods which offers high-grade healing products from St.Lucia and also offers healing retreats in St. Lucia. So while we can’t travel at the moment we’re definitely going to have to keep up with Akeem’s work.
So we know that quarantine got a lot of you really hyped up to start working out or get back into it. And luckily Tori is an instructor at soul cycle! So if you want to keep up with people in the Vancouver fitness scene, Tori is definitely someone to watch. And be sure to take one of her classes when you can.
Shanique or softieshan is a local DJ and event producer. And she runs LEVEL UP which is Vancouver’s “only queer rap and hip hop dance party with bipoc DJ’s and performers”. So we definitely recommend keeping up with her work and checking out one of her sets when you’re able.

And back on the topic of fitness, Johny Daniel is the owner and coach at DyerFitness Inc. And his training space focuses on CrossFit. So he is another great option if you’re looking for someone to help you on your fitness journey.
And we have this list thanks to Kula Kitchen! Not only do they have amazing Afro-Vegan food but they also have one of the most comprehensive lists of black-owned businesses in Vancouver in their story tab. So we highly recommend you try their food and they have multiple options like meal prep, catering, and retail. And they deliver for free!
The name is pretty self-explanatory but Karibu makes beautiful handcrafted soaps from natural and local ingredients. And in the time of COVID-19, you can never have enough soap. Plus artisan soap is always an excellent gift so we highly recommend checking out Karibu Handcrafted Soaps.
This brand is a local brand that offers “naturally grown & direct traded superfoods from Africa”. And their products are available at Loblaw, Whole Foods, Choices, Urban Fare & SaveOn. So be sure to look for Farafena products next time you’re doing a grocery shop.
Okay, folks, that’s what we have for you today and we hope that you go and check out all of these black-owned businesses in Vancouver. And also be sure to check out the post above and Kula Kitchen’s story for more businesses.
