Bala Freshmart is a local family owned and operated grocery store serving it’s community since 1995. Bala’s original Cranberry Sausage recipe originated in 1996 at Bala Freshmart. When the Luksa Family moved to the Cranberry Capital of Ontario they decided that they needed to create something “Cranberry” for the Cranberry Festival and thus the sausage was birthed. What was made only once a year for the festival soon turned into a year round job as it’s popularity grew.
