field trip :: marché st. george

2 Mar

Shhh… I’ve been twitter stalking Le Marché St. George when I was still in London, so you can bet your bottom dollar that we were going to visit soon after returning to Vancouver! You see, I have a “thing” for neighbourhood storefronts attached to houses. Maybe it’s because there aren’t that many of them in Vancouver, but they just seem so special and Le Marché St. George is just that. A neighbourhood grocer, they carry locally sourced grocery staples including Beta 5 chocolates, D-Original sausages, and farm house cheeses.

The husband and wife team also runs a cafe with a coffee bar and light lunch menu including a range of quiches and baked goods. Their hot chocolate is one of the best I have ever had – chocolatey, but not too sweet! A true hidden gem in South Vancouver (BC)!

    I’m a big fan of them as well! The best croissants and I love their selection of wine soaked cherries. Yum. I’ll meet you there!
