Bridgeland Market’s homemade mushroom soup has always been popular, but it’s about to be even more popular now that it’s gluten- and dairy-free too. Shop for it in-store or order online for curbside pickup or delivery.

Fresh Market Box from Calgary Farmers’ Market

You can eat what’s in season and support local farmers by purchasing the Fresh Market Box from the Calgary Farmers’ Market. The weekly box includes enough produce, proteins and pantry items for a household of three to four people. Get your order in on Thursday (while supplies last) for curbside pickup on Saturday.

It’s available for pickup or delivery.

Last year turned a lot of us into amateur mixologists. Luckily, you don’t have to try to make your own syrups and purées at home. Calgary’s Simply Cocktails makes cocktail mixes with real fruit purées, juices and flavours. Try the grapefruit, honey and rosemary mix and create your own Grapefruit Sunshine Cocktail (get Simply Cocktails’ recipe here). It’s available to purchase online for delivery or check here for a list of local retailers.
