What are some of Calgary's best locally produced foodstuffs ... ie: beer, butter, chocolate, wine, booze, bacon, etc???

Let's make a list!

    1. Jan's Bacon, Wildrose Velvet Fog Beer, Choklat bars.

      1. Any Wildrose Beer - especially their seasonal. I believe the Cherry Porter is out this week!

        Not Calgary but Canmore - Valbella Gourmet Foods for charcuterie

        1. sylvan star cheese, glamorgan baking, any local Rye Whiskey.

              They all have "Alberta" in the name. But read your label for content.

                Oh, also at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the Best Vodka, a Double Gold Medal winner was Alberta Pure Vodka, beating out 239 other entries. And this for a vodka that sells for less than $20 at many stores.

          1. Maybe not exclusively "Calgary" but close to the city:

            Spragg's Pork
            Crave Cupcakes
            Big Rock Beer's Winter Ale
            Broxburn tomatoes
            Lund's carrots, parsnips, spinach, chard

            I'm sure I'll think of more later.
