Ward’s Supermarket sources foods and goods from more than 400 vendors, most of whom are local. By working with vendors close to our area, we’re able to cut down the time food spends going from farm to table.

Vendor Spotlight


Ward’s is proud to carry soap and more from Stinky Lewis’ Soap.

Stinky Lewis’ Soap was started by Ariale Lewis in 2001 while she was recovering from a life-altering accident. Ariale’s love for animals led her to take in several sweet animals, and she needed income to provide for them. Ariale chose to try making soap, with no idea that her line would earn a cult following and inspire others to make more conscious decisions about what they consume, to become makers, and to be sure to enjoy what mother nature has to offer.

In 2016, Ariale retired and passed the business on to S. L. Soap fanatic Milan Mixson. Milan’s love for S.L. Soap was first documented in 2004 during her time at Florida School of Massage, when she went so far as to put the soap labels in her scrapbook for their inspiration and aesthetics.

Milan has jumped full-force into Stinky Lewis’ Soap and has enjoyed every minute so far. Keep an eye out for new items — she is constantly inspired to add to the selection!
