Dates are good for you, delicious and available in Vancouver. Dates are a snack that has been consumed for thousands of years. They're full of nutrients like fiber, potassium and iron, as well as essential minerals like copper, manganese and zinc. They also have B vitamins including thiamin (B1) which helps convert food into energy, riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), folic acid (B9) and vitamin B12 which boosts red blood cell production among other great things. Dates also have high levels of antioxidants such as phenols, flavonoids and carotenoids which help protect cells against damage caused by free radicals while they’re being processed by the liver or excreted through urine or sweat

Small Speciality Shops
These are shops that may sell dates, and may have a limited selection due to their size. However, they tend to have better quality dates because they will try to differentiate on quality from big box stores.
