The Market Calgary- “An Informed Dining-Out Experience”

This is going to be a great dinner to attend that is not only tasty, but super informative! Thanks to Yvan, the General Manager at the Market, we will be receiving an in-depth look at why this restaurant is so special.

The Market Restaurant has been nominated for The People’s Choice Award, and there is a good reason for this!

In a nutshell, “the idea of “Market Cuisine” stems from the French Canadian term “Cuisine du Marché,” which means cooking with fresh ingredients. At MARKET, our fresh ingredient philosophy starts in our kitchen, where we bake our own breads daily, cure our own meats, do our own butchering, make our own cheese and grow our own herbs, micro greens and select vegetables.” To read more of their story, click here.

By attending this dinner you’ll learn a lot! For instance, how the Market restaurant is the first restaurant in Calgary to use an internal home garden, the Urban Cultivator, "where we can grow more than 16 different varieties of heirloom seeds year round." You’ll also find out other interesting details about this one of a kind restaurant in Calgary.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP, and if you cannot make the event, please let us me know as soon as possible so another person can attend. If there is a large wait-list, I will see if it is possible to increase our reservation size. Thank you, and see you then!

    I'm glad I was able to attend this meetup as Market has been on my wishlist for quite some time. This was also my very first meetup and it was great to meet a group of foodies who are as passionate about food as I am!

    wow, the sliced duck breast was really excellent. It was nice and juicy, not dry at all. I had a side dish of gnocchi and it was extremely good too. I'm so full ! :) Very yummy.

    Likewise, there is an event related to work that has come up, so I cannot make this dinner. I too am glad there's a long waiting list! So sorry…I look forward to meeting everyone another time!

    • Ms. A.

      I'll find out. :)

    • Ms. A.

      Hey Tiffany, from what I found out there are vegetarian and Gluten Free options! Yet, I didn't get an affirmative on vegan dishes. I'll put in one more email. :)

    Hey everyone, I have sent an email to the General Manager of the Market to see if we can have another informed dinner for those on the wait list for the following Wednesday, November 13, 2013.

    As well, I will be adding a couple more events shortly, and they should be a lot of fun and informative.

    Since this dinner is so high demand and with a very long waitlist, I hope there will be another one like it organized in the near future!

    Disappointed that I won't be able to attend...but I have a conflict with my other passion, single malt! It's the same evening as the Whiskey Festival at Willow Park. Looking forward to next time!

      That also sounds like fun! There'll be lots of awesome dining-out experiences coming up. Look forward to meeting you Lisa. Have a great weekend!
