Calgary

Mercato

2224 4th Street Southwest
Calgary, AB T2S 0H3
(403) 263-5535


This family-owned market is like shopping in an Italian grandmother’s kitchen, from the freshest parmigiano reggiano to rich salsiccia. There is also an open-kitchen restaurant where you can sit at the counter — just like home.
 

Alberta Boot Company

50 50th Avenue Southeast
Calgary, AB T2G 5N3
(403) 263-4623


One of the best places to get handcrafted and custom-made cowboy boots north of the Mason-Dixon Line. This is where serious rodeo-goers get their gear for the Calgary Stampede.
 

Chinook Honey Company

www.chinookhoney.com

Highway 7 and 16th Street West
Okotoks, AB T1S 1A1
(403) 995-0830


This apiary sells all things honey — wine, candles, soap and our favorite, ice cream. It also offers various tours, where adults can try mead tasting or kids can see bee colonies firsthand (and sting-free).
