Groceries in walking distance from Sheraton Eau Claire?
Am heading back to Calgary for a work trip in September. Will be there for a week and am wondering if there is a place within a few minutes walking distance from the Sheraton Eau Claire on Barclay Parade SW where I can get some groceries like almond "milk", yogurt, fresh fruit etc. I was on the Eau Claire Market website and I see an Island Foods listed but the website is dead. Is it still there?
thanks Everyone! I will map all these places out.
If I can finish work at a decent time, I'll venture to as many as possible. It'll help me get to know more of my surroundings. The last time that I was there it was pretty much hotel-office-hotel-office.
makan2, I guess I should say almond beverage like Almond Breeze. I have a strange addiction to it.
The produce at Island Foods is usually past my prime, unless they've improved recently (haven't been there in a while).
Sunnyside Market (natural foods) and Safeway in Kensington are your best bet. If you take Route 419 at the corner of 2nd Ave & 4th St SW, it will take you right there. Or you could take the Northbound ("Crowfoot") C-Train to Sunnyside station. If you don't want to take the bus, it's only a 15 minute walk along the river.
If you want to check out a Farmer's Market, a small one takes place every Wednesday until mid-October) from 3:30 - 7:30 at the Sunnyside Hillhurst Community Centre (~25 min walk from the Sheraton).
