Food Things to Do

Preview: A Taste of the 5th Annual Strathearn Art Walk

Strathearn Art Walk Edmonton - Food

Earlier this week I got a chance to preview the food offerings that will be featured at the Strathearn Art Walk on Saturday, Sept. 10.

My friend / former colleague Kristen is on the Strathearn Community League and organizing committee for the popular walk, which is now in its 5th year!

Kristen asked if I was interested in coming to try the league’s “Signature Pulled Pork Sandwich” and vegetarian dish (Sweet Potato Chickpea Curry on Rice) with some of my friends. I happily obliged!

I think the Strathearn Art Walk is a great example of the awesome things communities can do when they come together.

Five years ago, the Art Walk began with just 20 artists and 10 volunteers.

This year they have more than 120+ artists and 100+ volunteers!

The neighbourhood is home to two art galleries and there was such a clear ‘walk’ down 95th Avenue to connect the two spots (at least initially).

Now the walk has grown and moved to Strathearn Drive Park between 89 and 91 Street.

It’s the biggest Art Walk in the city outside of the Whyte Ave Art Walk and has grown into quite a little festival – with not just the art vendors, but live music from local musicians (check out the line-up) and of course – food!

The Signature Strathearn Art Walk pulled pork sandwich!

This year’s Strathearn Art Walk features their famous Strathearn Pulled Pork Sandwich with Juniper Bistro Slaw and Pickled Onions. This sandwich has been served at all past Art Walks and with each year has become tastier and tastier!

There’s also a vegetarian-friendly option: Sweet Potato Chickpea Coconut Curry on Rice.

Both of these dishes are $8.50 each and prepared by a team of 9 ladies who live in the community.

Expect art, music, beer and food at the Strathearn Art Walk!

Nomad Espresso will also be serving up coffee and there will be a Beer Gardens with wine and Big Rock Brewery beer and pear cider!

Juniper Bistro will be selling desserts (including peanut butter chocolate cookies, ginger cookies, carrot cake and guinness cake) from their cafe. Their Art Walk pop-up “shop” is cutely called Juniper in the Park!

I can confirm that the famous Strathearn Pulled Pork Sandwich is famous for a reason – it is real damn good.

Part of its deliciousness I think is credited to the pickled onions!

If all onions were Strathearn Art Walk pickled onions, I would eat more onions! Yuuuum.

The Sweet Potato Chickpea Curry on Rice was good too – though we did provide some feedback (a bit more salt – and maybe more spice for a kick!) so the version you taste when you go on Saturday should be top-notch. ;)

Getting a Taste of Strathearn Art Walk!

We had a great time getting ‘A Taste of the Strathearn Art Walk’ and learning more about this little event that’s grown into a wonderful Edmonton festival.

It also made me better appreciate community leagues and all they try to do to get bring residents (and in this case – Edmontonians from all sorts of neighbourhoods) to come together.

Do you know what your community league offers? Are you a member?

Mike and I haven’t purchased memberships to our community league yet (we’ve been where we are for 2 years now) but will after this lovely experience.

Proceeds raised from the Strathearn Art Walk go to the community league, which helps them with their goal of building a new community hall.

The Strathearn Art Walk runs Sept. 10 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Strathearn Drive Park between 89 and 91 Street.

In typical Edmonton weekend fashion – there’s a number of other events taking place that day (which is not a bad thing – Edmonton events are the best!) but I’d definitely recommend you make a stop at this Art Walk on your Sept. 10 activities list.

You have to try that pulled pork (and ask for extra pickled onions!)

You might even fall in love with the neighbourhood and buy a house (which is what someone did last year after participating in the Art Walk! Seriously).

  • If you’re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, I recommend donating your time to @SantasAnonymous! 🎅🏻 They need volunteers to sort, wrap and deliver toys for Edmonton kids in need up to their Delivery Weekend (Dec 16/17). Thanks @britl for organizing her annual #yegwrap volunteer party. It’s something I look forward to each year! It doesn’t take much of your time to help make a family’s Christmas merrier.🎄

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean “army stew!” 🍜 It’s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (😍), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I don’t like beans so. 💁🏻‍♀️ Love eating this with rice too!
(Soup🍜 + rice 🍚 = life).

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but I’m also totally comforted with any potatoes. 🤤🙏🏻 like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with “angry” aioli. 😍 (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfire’s bacon dish). What’s your go-to comfort food?? 🍽
