Foodie's Day Out

Foodie149 Dec 21, 2009 10:19 AM

Now that the winter break has rolled around, I wanted to take this opportunity to enjoy some foodie destinations around Calgary.

I was looking more for markets and things that would be fun/interesting to go to.

I was looking at checking out Calgary's "Little India" and some Indian markets, also looking at some of the Filipino markets in town. I also want to go and check out Blush Lane.

Does anyone have any recommendations for some food market adventures?

      My food shopping days consist of:
      - Calgary's Farmer's Market
      - Wine Market near Farmer's Market
      - Community
      - either Lina's Italian Market or Scarpone's
      - T&T (Harvest Hills location is much better)
      - sometimes the Butcher Shoppe in Airdrie

      ... sorry pretty boring.

        Thanks for the advice,

        I have been to the cookbook company yes, I like it alot.

        I have not been to NAGA, that sounds like it is right up my alley.

        And I haven't been to the Harvest Hills T&T so I will check that out.

        Anyone been to any of the Filipino food stores in town?

        Have you been to NAGA store in Varsity? The store is owned by a Malaysian couple but they bring in goods for their SE Asian and Indian customers.
