Last week marked the completion of the 2023 Made in Alberta Awards season with Avenue’s annual Made in Alberta Market, sponsored by Oxford Properties at Bow Valley Square. On November 22 and 23, award-winning products from Alberta makers were proudly on display amidst the hustle and bustle of the mixed-use, commercial building.

Between lunch rushes and early afternoon breaks, shoppers perused tasty food products like the Monster Crunch Chili Crisp by Monster Sauce (2023 winner), butter chicken sauce from The Curryer (2022 runner-up) and Sunny Boy Foods’ NutraStat Barley Beta Glucan Fiber Powder (2023 runner-up). The vendors offered plenty of holiday gift options, including jewellery by Jennea Frischke Jewelry (2023 runner-up), candles by Misiyo Candle Co (2023 runner-up), Escape Mail, an escape room game in an envelope by Mobile Escape (2021 runner-up), and mountain-inspired cribbage boards by Knurl Design (2023 winner).

One21, which was this year’s overall grand prize winner with The Envelope bag, was also in attendance, offering shoppers an up close and personal look at the fine craftsmanship on this luxury bag.

Entries for the 2024 Made in Alberta Awards are open now.

The year-long Made in Alberta Awards program is proudly sponsored by Alberta Food Processors Association, Calgary Economic Development’s Trade Accelerator Program, Oxford Properties and Global News. Thank you to our sponsors.
