Things to do this week: Strathearn Art Walk, Callingwood Night Market, The Royal Bison and more!

    • 90 local and regional makers will be participating in The Royal Bison’s first Fall ONLINE Sale which runs Sept. 10-12. Find prints, books, ceramics, apparel, toys, photos, textiles, woodworking, jewelry and more. Many makers create products specifically for the Royal Bison so don’t miss out on some exclusive items.

  • Experience the Strathearn Art Walk

    • The Strathearn Art Walk, a free, family-friendly celebration of the arts, runs Sept. 11 and 12 from 12-7 p.m. both days along Strathearn Drive. A lovely event with local artists set to a beautiful river valley and skyline!

  • Get tickets to Savour Chef at Home Experience supporting MS Society Canada

  • Check out the Ring of Fire Fundraiser at Craft BEER Market

    • Participant slots are all full but you can should still be able to just come out to Craft BEER Market downtown (10013 101A Ave) and watch the Ring of Fire hot wings eating contest / fundraiser for the Alberta Cancer Foundation on Sept. 14 (like, plan to have dinner/drinks there too and then hopefully catch the wing eating action lol). Check their online auction too!

Got an Edmonton area event, virtual event, or something coming up you think my readers would be interested in knowing about? Let me know!

Food To Try This Week

You need to wear a mask inside restaurants when not seated. Please safely support local.

Eats to consider this week: African sausage, hot pot kits, Chinese BBQ and more!
  • Order a Hot Pot Kit from Kim Fat Market (9905 107 Ave.)

    • I recently had hot pot while camping and picked up many of the ingredients from local Chinatown grocer Kim Fat Market (and my mom lol). They also do entire Hot Pot Kits so they’ll give you everything you need for your experience, plus other great dishes (this week I’ll be ordering crab, lobster creamy noodles, and dry ribs from them for a gathering!)

  • Try spicy stir-fried baby clams from Co Chin Saigon (10632 100 St.)

    • We celebrated my brother’s birthday at Co Chin Saigon this week, one of Edmonton’s newer Vietnamese restaurants (you may recall I mentioned them when they first opened a few months ago!) in Chinatown. They do different Vietnamese specialty dishes including a stir-fried baby clams dish. And depending on the day of week, they have rotating specials that are also hard to find anywhere in the city!

  • Grab a BBQ lunch box from Super BBQ & Delight (10620 97 St.)

  • Eat African sausage from Uncle Brian’s Food Company (Downtown Market)

  • Welcome the new Bread Love bakery (10158 90 St.)

    • Edmonton has a new “savoury bakery,” Bread Love, located in the Riverdale neighbourhood! Part of the Little Brick family, find focaccia, pizza rolls, gluten free brownie, multigrain loafs, blueberry streusel brioches and more at Bread Love. Check them out and give them a warm welcome!

Ate something amazing recently? Want to show some love to a struggling restaurant? Have a take-out suggestion? Let me know to include in this newsletter.

Small Business Spotlight

In this new section of Lindork’s Lists, I shout out to support small businesses that aren’t necessarily food/restaurant or event-based.

In this week’s Small Business Spotlight, I’m shouting out to:

FO Photography, an Edmonton engagement, wedding, and special event photography duo (Funmi and Adrian). They specialize in noticing details and capturing your most precious moments. They also do portrait sessions, including currently taking bookings for limited fall sessions on Sept. 16 & 18, 2021. It’s $200 for the shoot, plus 20 high resolution images. Learn more and send her a message to support this small business owner and book your spot! The photo pictured below is from an FO Photography autumn shoot with Yves Salon Glam Group.

If you’re a small business owner who could use a shout-out, or know a small business who could use some awareness, let me know and I’ll try to feature them in this new section. You can email me suggestions / reply to this email.
