Written By Guest Writer Artisan / Edibles Jul 30, 2011 Edible Canada at the Market Opens on Granville Island The herb & veg planters lining the patio of Edible Canada at the Market Vancouver, BC. Earlier this month the brand new Edible Canada at the Market officially opened its doors to the public. The 3,500 square foot culinary centre in the heart of Granville Island is home to a vibrant bistro and artisan food retail store. The space is dedicated to promoting the best of BC and Canada, reflected in the locally based menus, wine list and retail products. Market-fresh seasonal cuisine determines the menus and fresh sheet – with Chef de Cuisine Jennifer Dodd searching the aisles of next door’s Granville Island Public Market for daily inspiration. The bistro seats 170, including an expansive patio perfectly sited for prime people watching, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Signature opening menu items include Duck Fat French Fries with Bacon Aioli, Birch Syrup & Kasu Sablefish, and Gluten Free Fish & Chips. The beverage program (curated by EAT Magazine’s DRINK Editor, Treve Ring) is entirely Canadian – from Vancouver’s SIP Soda, to boutique BC wines, to craft beer from Quebec, and single malt whiskey from Nova Scotia. Edible at the Market is also the only Vancouver site for highly regarded Nichol Vineyard wines on tap – Gewurztraminer and Nine Mile are delivered in kegs and tapped to pour through the bar’s draught lines. For those on the go there’s a take out window with a menu of quick and tasty handheld bites, as well as a barista-staffed full-service Salt Spring Coffee bar. Inside is a glassed-in private demonstration dining room, the new site of Edible Canada’s popular Guest Chef Market Dinner Series, and also available for private dinners and events. Every facet of the space was designed with sustainability in mind – from the recycled fir table tops, to the beach-scavenged cedar hostess stands (carved by Granville Island carver Clarence Mills). Both the main open kitchen and the demo kitchen are stocked with state of the art equipment, and a Vivreau water filtration system eliminates the need for bottled still or carbonated water. The sustainable measures extend to the exterior as well, with two electric vehicle plug-in parking stalls, and the patio lined with planter boxes of herbs and vegetables. *Watch for Julie Pegg’s feature on Edible Canada at the Market, along with interview of President and founder Eric Pateman, in a future edition of EAT Magazine.
