Forks Trading Company is a specialty shop across the bridge from our studio. The shop offers a wide selection of products and super friendly staff that will help make your shopping experience one to remember! We love shopping there and they LOVE seeing dancers and their families. Here are some of the many reasons we love them:

Shop Local!

By shopping at Forks Trading, you’re not only supporting one wonderful small business in the Forks Market, but you’re also supporting small local artisans from all across Manitoba! Forks Trading carries products from all sorts of local makers and every time you shop you have the opportunity to support someone new. Every bit of support goes a long way!
