Giveaway: Win a $100 Gift Card to Sobeys Newcastle Take-Out Kitchen & Fresh Market

Okay, this is pretty cool! Did you hear about the #SobeysKitchenSurprise? In mid-March, 25 people were invited to what they thought was a menu tasting for a new restaurant called “Fresh Market Bistro” that would open later this year in north Edmonton.

The event featured a five-course meal that included charcuterie, butternut squash soup, salmon, prime rib, and Italian pastries. At the end of the meal, the guests got the big reveal: the food was actually from the take-out kitchen and fresh market at Sobeys Newcastle!

It was a really neat way to announce this unique concept Sobeys kitchen/store, located at 16943 – 127 Street, that features ready-made to take home, fresh food every day. (The communications nerd in me is especially excited by how they tried to do a fun, surprising video as a way to promote this!)

Watch the video below:

The fine folks at Sobeys reached out and asked if I would be interested in giving away a $100 gift card to the Sobeys Newcastle location so other Edmontonians could check out the fresh market/take-out kitchen.

Sobeys Newcastle opened in June 2014 at the Newcastle Shopping Centre at the corner of 127 Street and 167 Avenue and is the first “new concept Sobeys” in Edmonton. Menu items are prepared daily and sold for takeout. Great for lunch/easy dinner! Keep scrolling for details on how to enter for a chacne to win $100 gift card to try out Sobeys Newcastle!

  • The Vivo Pizza 🍕 at @vivoristoranteyeg is SO tasty! Pulled chicken, signature Vivo sauce, grana padano 🧀 Tried a lot of great dishes tonight at #VivoDowntown (behind #MacEwanU) for their new #happyhour #aperitivo menu launch including this one. Good deals, Monday to Friday 3-6 p.m., during the day on weekends too! It was also really nice to meet Vivo @ChefMedi. He's so passionate about his craft. 🙏🏻 And he put together a gluten-free 🍕 for @theporkgirl that was stellar! 👌🏻

  • An Instagrammable Wall blast from my past! I used to work at @globaledmonton doing a bunch of things over a few years.. video editing, web producing, news producing, writing and helping people in the Troubleshooter department! Been wanting to photograph this wall for awhile now (#IGWallsofYEG) and finally did this weekend. ☺️Apparently it's also a #PokemonGo hot spot lol. 😅

  • I could make a visit to @lamar_yeg food truck part of my Sunday routine, oh yes I could. 🙌🏻🤤 Excellent shrimp tostadas and maple orange pork carnitas tacos (unpictured 🌮) today!! They are at Glastonbury Park every Sunday (unless there's a big festival somewhere else lol)! 👌🏻

  • Had an awesome time touring Instagrammable Walls of Chinatown / east Downtown this weekend with my co-host @britl & this great group of people! There is no shortage of things to do in Edmonton in the summer so I definitely appreciated these guys choosing an #IGWallsofYEG #photowalk! 🙏🏻 This wall is called #ThunderBirdAlley on 105 Ave between 96 and 97 Street. 👌🏻 Would largely go unnoticed for those walking or driving along 97 Street but definitely deserves some attention! Another walk is in the works for September, stay tuned! ☺️

  • Dreaming of gelato. 💕🍧 I was out in #SturgeonCounty tonight at the annual Sturgeon County Bounty #CulinaryCookout and this raspberry lime gelato from @davincigelato was lovely. The #SturgeonCountyBounty is such a stellar event - think Taste of Edmonton & Heritage Festival with awesome #tasteab food but more of a relaxed, less crowded environment, great portion sizes / value, that fresh country air and lovely live music! Mark your calendars for next year- add it to your summer festival list! Check my IG Stories and my pal @argenplath's feed for more scenes from the festival! 😊

  • A feast for dinner tonight with @littlmissandrea and our baes at the new Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu on the west end! 😋 We basically tried their whole menu 😅 and thought it was great! A pretty casual spot in a strip mall, with quick service, affordable prices, and tasty dishes! Welcome to the neighbourhood, Nara. 👋🏻

  • Meat sweats anyone? 😍😅 So excited Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse @eatpampayeg is expanding to south Edmonton! They're officially open Aug 9. Check my IG Stories / blog (link in bio) for a preview! I love Brazilian rodizio (delicious all you can eat rotisserie meat BBQ, served on giant skewers at your table!) plus salad bar.. plus unbelievable Brazilian cheese balls... 😍 The rump steak is featured in this photo and is definitely my favourite of the 15 cuts of meat they offer! 😌
