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!

  • I haven't had a really good, loaded potato skin in a long time. So comforting. 🙏🏻 This dish is part of @yourAGA's #ZincTapasTuesday - they're offering new menu items to coincide with their new free admission Tuesday (and Wednesday). I got to try some of the dishes tonight with some #foodfriends! My other favourites of the night was the duck breast and a killer pulled pork sandwich that's just $4! 🍔Thanks @chefdaveomar. 👌🏻

  • Banh xeo, shrimp chips and pho on the patio at @phoboyvk with @kathytrinhle today! ❤️☀️ Banh xeo is a Vietnamese fried pancake with pork, shrimp and beansprout filling. It's delish. 🙌🏻 While in the area I also scouted out some more #IGWallsofYEG, planning the next #photowalk for #WhyteAve @oldstrathcona for early July! Stay tuned for details. 📸☺️

#SocialWest is the largest digital/social media marketing conference in the Prairies. I can't wait to learn from industry experts + present too! I'm delivering a session tomorrow on Instagram + Snapchat Stories! I call it, #StoriesTelling. 🤓🙊

  • I feel like poke has been allllll over my feed lately! Pronounced "po-kay," this traditional Hawaiian raw fish 🐠 salad, typically served with sauce over rice 🍚, has finally hit the Prairies. 🌾 Over on the blog (www.linda-hoang.com, link in bio), I review the new @OnoPokeCoYEG, which literally translates to "delicious poke." 😊  Delicious poke indeed. Pictured here 📸 is Ono's Original Ahi tuna poke bowl. Have you tried poke? Are you as thrilled as I am that we finally have great poke options in Edmonton?! 🙌🏻

  • This weekend @mikethyking & I had a great #staycation at the @deltaedmsouth! We love how this hotel is #petfriendly so @OliveAndArtie were able to spend the weekend with us too. 🐶❤️ We also had a great dinner at their 4404 restaurant. Looking forward to coming back here tmrw night for #IndulgenceYEG, a #yegfood & wine festival 🍷 taking place at the Delta. Tickets support the Junior League of Edmonton & I believe some are still available on their website if you want to spice up your Monday with basically unlimited food & wine! ✨

  • I had so much fun guest judging @porkapaloozayeg's "Chop it Like it's Hot" mystery box challenge today with @divaqbbq & #TasteAlberta! 🐷🐔🍳😍 @ChefPaulShufelt & @ChefCowan came up with some really tasty dishes using bacon, chicken, asparagus and lentils. 👌🏻 In the end, Chef Cowan took the title 🏆, but it was a really close race!! Pictured here is Chef Cowan's fried chicken, lentils, and carrots dish topped with a fried egg. 🍳 Be sure to see these two in action again for Bacon Day - a charity event they put on each September. Follow them for details! 🐷 🥓

  • New on the blog 📸 #ExploreEdmonton's #InstagrammableWalls! I've put together a guide to #IGWallsofYEG - mural, graffiti, coloured, interesting textured walls around the city that make for great photo backdrops & add beauty to Edmonton. 💚 Check out the spots I've found at www.linda-hoang.com (link in bio) + let me know what spots I'm missing! Hope to host another #instawalk along these wall routes soon, but in the meantime, you can take your own self-guided tour! 🤗

  • Can we take a moment to talk about the greatest crostini there ever was? 🙏🏻 This tomato, ricotta, mint, chili crostini from @uccellinoyeg will make you moan in delight, it is sooo good. 😭❤️😭 Uccellino was an excellent pick for a girls dinner last night (or, any dinner, any occasion). Thanks @prettythingsyeg @heyvanessaleigh for being so agreeable and letting me pick our plates! 🤗🍽

  • Today was SO fun! 🤗 My friend @prettythingsyeg and I hosted an #IGWallsofYEG #instawalk checking out some beautiful walls in downtown Edmonton as part of @makeityeg's #100in1DayYEG #citybuilding event! We had a group of 14, walked about 7km, and made stops at 10 walls. I'll be blogging photos and locations of a bunch of #InstagrammableWalls around the city this week and hope to host another tour soon! Thanks to everyone who came out. ❤️
