Crampton's Market in Wpg - locavore delight

Has anybody else been to this great market? I did a search and there's been no mention of it on the boards.
We came across Cramptons one day on the way to the St. Norbert Farmer's Market. I had seen this little place by the driving range at the corner of Kenaston/Bishop Grandin and Waverly before and thought I'd check it out because there wasn't anything specific I needed at the Farmer's Market. I had kind of been expecting one of those 'fresh fruit' shacks, but I was blown away by this place once I got inside. There was tons of fresh produce, a dairy section, a meat section, ready-to-eat stuff, snacks and a full bakery which made it smell amazing.
They have done some serious research into local producers and have fantasic stuff produced in Manitoba - tons of local produce, New Bothwell and Oak Island cheese, bison and elk meat, local berkshire pork, jams and condiments and THE BEST cinnamon buns in the city that have been warm and dripping with melted butter every time I've got them. The only time I've ever been to the shop is Saturday mornings, so maybe that's the time to go!
