The Market on MacLeod is, I believe, relatively new. And it’s super convenient, even for pedestrians, as it’s only two blocks from the Heritage LRT station.
You enter via a seating area, so I wondered if the market was primarily a food court, but that wasn’t the case. There were certainly lots of vendors selling hot lunches, but they were also selling frozen and take-out food.
There were also fruits and vegetables, dairy, cakes and chocolate.
Here are just a few things that caught my eye.
I loved the mini paletas (Mexican fruit bars) from Sabores, and I was even happier when I realized they were organic with 100% natural ingredients. I bought a slice of Mexican cake that was very good.
The stuffed olives from Angela’s Olives were spectacular. I had the Cadillac mix, which was stuffed with almonds and marinated with feta cheese and herbs.
The curries from A Touch of India (Dostana) were fabulous and there were lots of vegetarian options.
I also picked up a vegetarian taco pie from Simple Simon Pies. They offered samples of all their pies, which I really appreciated.
Sylvan Star Cheese is based in Red Deer, Alberta. I definitely recommend their Old Grizzly, an extra aged sharp gouda.
