What do a cow, two forks, a maple leaf and two sheaths of wheat have in common? They are the emblems of the newly opened Market restaurant on 17th Avenue in Calgary.  During a grand opening ceremony chefs, owners, managers, bartenders and staff mingled with guests. The crew at Market includes: Vanessa Salopek
(owner), Geoff Rogers (Executive Chef), David Bohati (Chef de Cuisine) Yvan Toulouse (General Manager) and Mixologist Rebecca Davis.

"For MARKET, it’s a commitment, a choice, and a way of life. MARKET is founded on the principles of community, relationships and ethics, paying homage to Alberta’s heritage by drawing from the seasonal resources that are found regionally."

A showstopper piece of the restaurant is the herb growing Urban Cultivator, an internal home garden that garnered oohs and aahs from guests. Other unique features are the house-made rootbeer, stenciled artwork, and customized tablewares.
