Forage Foods now open in Calgary

We're thrilled to bring you breaking news of the opening of Forage Farm to Fork Food to Go in Calgary. Forage is our good friend, chef Wade Sirois' newest venture. He's also the impeccable palate behind Infuse Catering.

Here's the latest news, straight from Forage!

The new Forage shop is going to offer locally focused prepared foods along with local ingredients to help make eating sustainably more convenient. Every day we are going to have a hot entrée ready to go along with some fresh sandwiches and ready to heat foods. We are also going to have our frozen entrées so you can stock up for the times you can’t make it to the shop. You’ll find things like our Wapiti Ways Elk Meatballs in Mushroom Cranberry Cream Sauce and fully cooked Grilled Sunworks Farm Chicken Breast. Along with the entrées we are going to offer things like our new Forage Tomato Sauces and Salsas featuring Gull Valley Greenhouse produce that we are currently developing. You will also be able to get some of our favorite Alberta foods like Highwood Crossing Canola Oil and Chinook Honey. We have built in a small food bar with stools in the front window so you can eat in the shop too.

And today, we got the great news that the official opening day has been set:

We have our final approvals done, the paint is dry and Forage will open this Thursday, July 19th at 4:00 pm.
