The Journey of the Happy Camel
The Happy Camel has been in business since 1998.
It all started in the basement of Gerald and Sara Larson's family home. She started selling dips and salads at Farmer's Markets throughout Edmonton in 1998. The business started growing when they found a permanent home at the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market where, to this day, people line up to buy our tasty products.
With the amazing response to our dips and salads, it only seemed natural to add pita bread too!
So, Sara travelled to her home village in Israel to learn the secrets of baking the perfect pita bread. She returned with two electric pots which were used at the time to bake our pitas one by one.
Again, the demand for the products led to an expansion in the business.
After seven years of working from the basement, the Larsons relocated to The Marketplace in Callingwood and invested in an oven designed to suit the requirement of producing more pitas instead of one at a time. Now they could supply the entire city with our renowned pita and hummus.
After 17 years of operation, the Larsons introduced the new owners Ron and Mary Anne Korn, who are proud to continue on the Happy Camel's journey.
We continue to bring the goodness of the Mediterranean table to you in the freshest, most authentic way possible, following the Larson’s legacy and sparing no detail when it comes to quality and taste.
