La Grotta Mediterranean Market

Winnipeg’s multicultural citizens are well represented by a number of markets that import exotic ingredients and prepare ethnic specialties on site. These shops act as cultural hubs and offer a taste of the world.

Bernstein’s Deli

A classic Jewish diner with a wealth of prepared fare to take home, this neighbourhood spot is a stellar source for soup, particularly homey cabbage borscht. Take some goodness to go and pick up a loaf of fresh rye bread and local sour pickles

1700 Corydon Ave, 204-4884552

Dino’s Grocery Mart

Specializing in spices, Dino’s shelves are stocked with ingredients culled from India, Pakistan and the Caribbean. Score a jar of sweet and sour tamarind sauce, it’s great for dipping and adds depth to sauces

460 Notre Dame Ave, 204-9421526

La Grotta Mediterranean Market

For cooks and eaters this market is paradise replete with specialty foods, bakery, butcher shop and this city’s most impressive cheese counter (pictured). Be sure to leave with a buttery wedge of earthy Trappist cheese, a raw milk delicacy made by monks close to Holland, Manitoba.

1360 Taylor Ave, 204-983-9461

Greek Market

A gleaming deli counter houses dozens of delicacies, from a perfected rendition of lemon potatoes to hearty Béchamel-smothered moussaka.  Buy a slice of baklava, its honeyed layers of delicate phyllo pastry envelope pockets of almonds and walnuts.

1440 Corydon Ave, 204-4886161

Lucky Supermarket

Tangy and tantalizing, it’s near impossible to leave this Asian supermarket without stopping at the meat counter to load up on char sui. Crispy, slightly charred, and semi-sweet crackling morsels of barbeque pork are habit forming.

1051 Winnipeg Ave, 204-272-8011
