Local, Seasonal, Delectable: MARKET Calgary

 

MARKET Calgary
There’s something to be said about a restaurant whose entire existence is based on a passion for local ingredients, sustainable resources, and, well, damn good food. It’s even more impressive when that passion is more than just a concept, and it becomes a reality. That reality is certainly the case for MARKET, the new kid on the block on Calgary’s 17th Avenue.

MARKET Calgary
The idea for MARKET first came to owner Vanessa Salopek in 2012. She partnered with Chef Geoff Rogers, who came on board as Executive Chef; David Bohati, MARKET’s Chef de Cuisine; and Yvan Toulouse, the restaurant’s General Manager. Together, the team has created a place that is bound to attract Calgarians and visitors to the city alike.

They make their cheese, butcher and cure their meat, and grow their greens and herbs in house. How much more local can you get?

The unique menu {which changes seasonally}, the stunning décor {seriously. Gorgeous.}, and the open concept kitchen {yes, you can watch them cook. Do it. It’s inspiring.} are just a few of the things that make MARKET so special {as are the incredible chocolate chip cookies that they made while I was there. If I could eat those cookies daily, my life would be complete.}.

An experience at MARKET wouldn’t be complete without one of mixologist Rebecca Davis’ cocktails. Try the “Ratified” – a very well balanced combination of St Remy brandy, white cranberry juice, and bitters {a drink that makes me feel like I’m a little less Stephanie, and a little more Joan from Mad Men}.

Next time you’re in the neighbourhood, give MARKET a try {and have an extra bite from the charcuterie board for me, will you?}. For more information, hours, and location, visit the MARKET website.
