A word from MARKET
Named #1 Best New Restaurant Calgary 2013- CBC, John Gilchrist and Nominated for Canada's Best New Restaurant 2013- enRoute Magazine

The idea of “Market Cuisine” stems from the French Canadian term “Cuisine du Marché,” which means cooking with fresh ingredients. At MARKET, our fresh ingredient philosophy starts in our kitchen, where we bake our own breads daily, cure our own meats, do our own butchering, make our own cheese, homemade sodas, and grow our own herbs, micro greens and select vegetables. MARKET is the first restaurant in Calgary to use an internal home garden, the Urban Cultivator, where we can grow more than 16 different varieties of heirloom seeds year round. We change our menu regularly so we can cook in harmony with the changing seasons and ensure the freshest and best tasting ingredients possible

Gluten free and vegetarian options available.

Executive Chef- Dave Bohati

Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I went to Market for our anniversary and had a wonderful meal. The food was fresh with vibrant flavors joined in unexpected and delightful combinations. The service was top notch, with the staff making us feel special during our celebration. They were warm and friendly, without being too present or intrusive. Market deserves all the praise it has been receiving in the media and is a wonderful addition to the Calgary food scene."

  • "Upon reading some reviews we were a little unsure of how good the food would be we were pleasantly surprised it was great Would highly recommend this restaurant We had the lamb special that night and loved it the meatballs were so tasty and the salmon was cooked perfectly will be back"

  • "The pork belly and seafood platter was amazing!!! Will definitely be back for seconds!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The homemade burger buns are delicious ... but the burger itself was tasteless and unfortunately the bun was soggy; my sister-in-law's salmon meal was overly salty; my brother asked to substitute the parm fries with his burger and was charged an extra $8, so he paid $31 for his soggy burger. My niece ordered the vegetarian gnocchi, which she really enjoyed and said was spectacular. I also ordered a beet salad which I enjoyed. Overall though, we were disappointed, and wouldn't choose to come back here or recommend it to others."

  • "One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Our server Mark was passionate about serving. We shared everything we ordered - appetizers (2 were the night's special) and 1 main along with a dessert and a bottle of wine and everything was great! Can't wait to go back!"

  • "as many of the calgary eateries, way over priced! I was on a first date and didn't walk out of there under $150. service was good, portions, so-so, oysters were very weak, voted best restaurant? I don't get it to be honest. I eat out 3-5 times per week and this eatery was very average with a high price tag."

  • "They dropped their delicious poutine and now 2 trips in a row have been marred by pretentious and unfriendly service by different servers - not going back!"

  • "My husband and I wanted to try a new restaurant and Market delivered. The food was awesome, and we love the concept. The portions were quite a bit bigger than we expected, so we ended up with way too much food. Tried to eat everything, and really wanted to because it was all so delicious, but we couldn't do it! The sweet potato beignets were amazing. And the oven roasted carrots - wow! Could have done without the other guests at a nearby table - I guess they really thought they should have had our table. They asked the server to move us so they could sit at our table! Didn't know people that self centered really existed."

  • "Have dined here in the past ... But never had room for dessert! This time we decided to have appies drinks and desserts which were all amazing! Brought friends with us and sat on the patio ... We all loved it! Duck tacos and mussels were fantastic and full of flavor! Topped the night off with desserts ... Mint ice cream with chocolate cake, strawberry pavlova and pb and j donuts! Mmmmmmmm absolutely awesome ..."

  • "My girlfriend and I wanted to go to Market for ages. Great reviews from friends and coworkers. Finally got there for a date night and Market definitely lived up to our expectations and then some. We had the duck tacos to start and we're blown away. If you're splitting them with someone, definitely pay extra for the additional taco. You won't be disappointed that you did. For the entre, we ordered the pork belly and shellfish for 2. It was amazing!!! A great variety of food on the platter and it all works together so well no matter what combination you put together. Unfortunately we were too full to order dessert but the donuts come highly recommended. I will definitely be ordering them next time. An overall great dining experience."

  • "This was my second time at Market. We ordered an appetizer (muscles), drinks (pimm's cups) and two entrees (salmon + chicken). The drinks were great but the entrees took over an hour even though the restaurant was not overly busy. We were compensated for the wait with..... popcorn. The salmon was mediocre, a dry and overcooked. The chicken was good, and the risotto was cooked correctly, but it was too salty to finish it. For the price of the food, we were expecting much better. There are other restaurants near 17th ave that have consistent quality with better pricing."

  • "We had a superb server who helped my friend and I with all of our cleanse dietary needs and allergies. The kitchen produced an AMAZING beef dish with all the trimmings which were fantastic. It was nice to eat out an not have poached fish and steamed greens. We will definitely return and bring friends."

  • "MARKET is bright, fun, and casual. The service was very good - friendly and knowledgeable. The food was well prepared and the presentation was good. We had the burger and pork tenderloin, with Parmesan fries. Everything was a bit different from the basic, with great sides. Everything was excellent. The teas were also good and a bit different! We would definitely recommend MARKET to others!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Wasn't sure about this place because of the low rate, but the food was good and the service wasn't bad either! We had Oysters-MARKET accompaniments and PORK BELLY & SCALLOPS. It was bit pricy, but it's worth it!! I really like their home made drink. I had ice tea and my friend had a ginger ale. I would recommend if you are dining on 17th Ave. and try something new!"

  • "I brought discerning friends from out of town, and we were pleasantly surprised! Now, l will go back for date night, client lunches, family celebrations!"

  • "I'm not the type of person to write a review. But I think there was magic in that pork belly which has turned me into a new MARKET groupie. The food was - phenomenal. I'm still in a cloud of happiness remembering what I ate. From the cocktails to the appetizers (donuts! okay... beignets) to the main, everything had so much care and was truly perfect. Even the size of paper towel spit out of the auto machine in the washroom was perfect! The pork belly and shellfish For Two was not only delicious, it was really well-priced. And the portion size left us feeling stuffed - but pleased with ourselves for conquering the mountain of food. And we still with room for homemade chocolates (soooo worth it). I can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "They didn't have the menu we were expecting but after initial disappointment we ordered from the current menu and were extremely happy with our orders. Fish tacos were unique and exactly what I had hoped for, delicious! My husband ADORED his fried chicken sandwich. Great vibe in the restaurant as well. Will be back for dinner another day! Oh and very reasonable and varied wine menu."

  • "I have discovered the secret of Mona Lisa's SMILE - she must have sampled MARKET's fabulous menu. Friday June 20th - a dreary rainy night in Calgary turned to sunshine inside at "Market"- professional smiling service - heavenly food."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food was just ok, but yet very expensive. Waaaayyy too loud to have a dinner conversation to and the ambience is too cold. Too bad it was for my birthday dinner. Will not return."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Hmm... started off well with the creative cocktails but quickly turned disappointing once the food started arriving. The meatballs app was great while the duck pate presentation was a let down -- pre-spread way too thinly on the bread, barely noticeable. The duck "tacos" were quite good, albeit not being tacos but small crepe-like pancakes. Consensus around the table was that the burger was bland, really not what you'd expect in this place. Overall, limited menu was a little frustrating and the "deconstructed" desserts scared us off. Service was ok until our server sensed our disappointment at which point he chose to make himself scarce."

  • "A few friends and I met for lunch last weekend and were blown away by the food at Market! While the service was a tad slow, Market definitely made up for it with the wonder that is their fried chicken sandwich. It blew my taste buds away! If you find yourself wandering down 17th Avenue looking for tasty food and good vibes, Market is the place to be. Patio is great, sodas are tasty and the fried chicken sandwich is calling your name."

  • "Had to take a picture of my meal....outstanding presentation. We started with the mussels which had a rich broth and little junks of piggy sausage. .best mussels I've had. For my main, I had the Angus beef minus the arugula mashed potatoes because I do a weird food combining thing - was really sorry I couldn't eat the potatoes, which I got on the side for my friend to eat...and apparently she thoroughly enjoyed them as the little pot they came in was almost licked clean! Our waitress was great..let us sample a couple wines before choosing and was very attentive and fun. Will definitely go back very soon."
