Here we are, already, at the last weekend before Christmas. If, like me, you find yourself in a bit of a panic, take a deep breath and head over to Fort St. Pick up an espresso at Street Level, and while the caffeine is coursing peruse this list. You’ll be done in time for lunch.The Hundred Mile Christmas:If you want to go with an all-BC made food basket, the Feys and Hobbs Holiday Boutique has you more than covered. David Feys has sourced the very best our province has to offer, and has it all in stock at his Fort St. pop-up shop. A few of our favourites:From Vancouver‘s favourite chocolatier, Thomas Haas; hot chocolate for the connoisseur comes in three choices: Classic, Aztec and Extra Dark. 350g. for $20.From South Surrey‘s Missing Goat Blueberry Farm; Blueberry Syrup, Blueberry Lavender Jam, Apple Curry Chutney. Assorted prices.From Whistler‘s Nonna Pia Gourmet, Balsamic Reduction in Strawberry Fig, Classic and Rosemary.From the Sea to Sky Corridor, comes the exquisite Sea to Sky Seasonings salts. Try Haïda Gwaii salt with salmon, or experiment with their Curry Salt – a blend of and harvested salt and Chef Vikram Vij’s own Garam Masala blend. 30g. for $7.Non-Edible Food Gifts:Stroll east on Fort for some great gifts you can’t eat. The Good Planet has a wonderful selection of tiffin-style stacking containers and reusable bamboo cutlery sets – perfect for the gift of a more eco-friendly lunchtime. Oscar and Libby’s has a wide selection of kitchen utensil ornaments by One Hundred 80° (starting at $9.99), and a wide selection of those quirky Fred kitchenwares. I know a certain 6 year.old boy who will get a kick out of making Ninjabread Men this year (sorry – pun intended). Their matroyshka measuring cups and spoons make great stocking stuffers too.There you have it. While you’re on Fort, don’t forget to stop in at Plenty. Their gorgeous Pantry Boxes are the easiest way to make any food-lover smile, and you can pick up a packet of Organic Fair‘s Mulling Spice Mix while you’re there.Feys and Hobbs636 Fort St. The Good Planet764 Fort St. Oscar and Libby’s770 Fort St. Street Level Espresso714 Fort St. Plenty Epicurean Pantry1034 Fort St.GiftsHolidays SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Cynthia Annett-Hynes ...
