Foodies Rejoice: Granary Road is Now Open!

posted by: on: June 18, 2018 5:30:02 PM



One of the most exciting public market, entertainment and dining experiences to come to Calgary in years is now open just 30 mins from EconoLodge South Calgary.
 
Home to some of Alberta’s finest artisan vendors, Granary Road is an innovative project nestled in the rolling foothills just a few minutes south of Calgary. Showcasing a public market, an active learning park and a greenhouse, the attraction blends exhilarating learning experiences with delicious dining options.

Overflowing with old world charm, there is plenty of family fun on the menu too, with a line-up of daily goat stampedes, chocolate-making demonstrations and meet-and-greets with the farmers who grow the attraction’s produce. Here are the highlights…
 

Animals and Agriculture

Check out the four-storey ant farm, take a slide down a corkscrew slide into a giant apple, fly on the  mini zip line that ends inside a gargantuan pear, bounce on lily pad trampolines and see a bee hive that has its own internal live camera feed.

Mouth Watering Treats

Food and beverage vendors on site offer everything from sculpted cotton candy to traditional bratwurst. Old fashioned bike carts deliver ice cream treats, while the Beehive Snack Shack provides a variety of grab-and-go options.
 

Specialty Vendors

The Granary’s market features more than 40 vendors offering everything from artisan cheese and old-world baked goods, to classic confectionary and homemade pasta.
 

The Greenhouse

Granary Road is the first market in Calgary to have its own greenhouse on site.  The greenhouse supplies the produce for the market vendors and the Granary’s restaurants, as well as offering the freshest produce available to market-goers.

 

If you're looking for a hotel near the Granary, the South Calgary EconoLodge is a great option. Offering some of the most affordable rooms in South Calgary, this cozy and economical property provides comfortable rooms at great rates without ever compromising on great service.
