Food shopping in Calgary
Just saw the topic and would like to know about some of the ethnic shop and Bakeries in Calgary. I am new in the city and have not had much of chance to look around yet. I have been to Gunters Bakery on 17th SE and found the rye breads amazing. Any other shops anyone can think of to try here??
I am new also to Calgary and visit this site often. I have checked out recently La Tiendona Market, and another market I have not seen mentioned here before. Unimarket. La Tiendona had all the familiar Mexican, Central American and some South American food, condiments and drinks I have grown to know and love coming from Houston. Unimarket, which is owned by 6 Columbians I learned, has two locations one is at 510 - 77 Ave. S.E. Heritage Market off Blackfoot and a second location at 2405 Edmonton Trail N.E. Unimarket has some of my favorites such as passion fruit, mango, guava and berry pure fruit pulps in their refrigeration and freezers. They also carry the Las Tortillas' tortillas.
There is also The italian Supermarket at 265 20 Ave. N.E.. i counted over 35 Balsamic Vinegars, one that was even $25 cheaper than one I saw at Mercato. This market has products from Southern Europe as well as some Middle Eastern.
Lina's has great coffee and if you are looking for wonderful varity in white serving platers and misc. dishes. This is better than W&S for these type of items, much better prices.
Each store has something to bring to the table for every budget.

haven't been their for years but a search sill turns up the name
and address so it still should be open.

I hope they're still open,I haven't been there in 3-4 years as

I've mentioned this before but here goes again. It's so easy to make paneer and it tastes better!
