104th Street Feast

104th Street Feast

104th Street Feast

A new and fun food concept launches in September on 104 Street. Called the 104th Street Feast, the concept is the inaugural outing for Edmonton Food Tours, a new company offering walking food tours of Edmonton neighbourhoods.

The food tour, which profiles Edmonton’s spectacular City Market, starts out with a full-on Ukrainian brunch, care of chef Brad Smoliak of Kitchen by Brad (located just a block from the market at 10130 105 St.). Then, well-sated, we gather at the south end of 104 Street and begin our tour.

Together, we’ll stop at key market vendors, sampling their wares (think cookies by Confetti Sweets and dumplings by Honest Dumplings) and hearing their remarkable stories. Along the way, we’ll tell you things about the market and its history that will astound and amaze (yes, it’s better than a trip down the midway). We’ll also stop in at non-market vendors, including Jacek Chocolate Couture, for more treats. We finish our tour at 1 p.m. at deVine Wines.

Edmonton Food Tours is part of Alberta Food Tours, which started in Calgary 10 years ago. The owner is Calgary food writer and broadcaster, cookbook author and culinary tour leader, Karen Anderson, who also expanded the company into Canmore this summer.

You’ll start with a satisfying brunch and add several delectable treats to that.

 

Our tours take place in rain or shine. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes for walking.

 

This tour is for ages 14 and up and all fitness levels.

 

Tours run Saturdays 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Your ticket price includes payment, tip and tax to all our vendor partners so all you have to do is relax and enjoy.


What to Expect

We meet at Kitchen by Brad on 105th St. You’ll be welcomed with fresh coffee, a hardy Ukrainian breakfast and chef’s demo that you’ll never forget. With happy bellies we’ll walk a block to the 104th St. market and taste our way through our favourite vendors with fruits, chocolate, Newget, cookies, dumplings, bison and more. We’ll toast our great morning with a wine tasting.

Escape the tourist areas as our local guides share the history and adventure of this amazing city.
