Kosher in Calgary

JRKyummy Aug 19, 2012 09:22 AM

What are the best supermarkets for kosher challah, chicken and deli in Calgary? We will be staying in Canmore, and want to make sure that there is a reliable selection so that the drive to Calgary won't be a waste.

    I was there last summer, and we wound up going to the Safeway in Calgary that stocks some kosher products (chicken, cheese, grape juice, etc.). It's in Glenmore Landing, near the JCC, and was about a half hour from the Calgary airport -- we went there before driving up to Canmore. I don't remember if they had any deli. And at least last year, kosher bread was a problem in general, so I brought my own.

    Many regular products have a hechsher, similar to here in the U.S., and those you would be able to get in either Calgary or Canmore.

      Also, Toronto Kosher ships pretty much anywhere in Canada www.torontokosher.com if you plan ahead.
