What a fabulous find! Thanks to all those that recommended the place. I finally found it this last Saturday and a parking spot right out front.
The space itself is industrial looking but well laid out. I think they need to work out some of the bugs but the place is still pretty new.
The selection of goods is amazing including organic grains and cereals, cookies, crackers, olive oils and vinegars. They have sourced out the best of what Calgary has to offer – beautiful crusty French bread, chevre cheese, vital greens dairy, smoked duck, gourmet soups, chocolate and more!
There is an extensive selection of knives demonstrated by a very enthusiastic Kevin. I had him confused as I am generally a vegetarian but cook huge vats of turkey soup for my inlaws so need knives mostly for veggies but also to occasionally attack a bird or two. He even gave me a terrifying lesson on how to chop veggies with one of his enormous knives. I think I will just stick with my petite chef!
The service is warm and welcoming and friendly. They are very keen on sharing samples and I recommend that you go when you have some time to browse and shop and explore all the goodies they have on offer.
