Brit Foods in Saskatoon is located in Cumberland Square at #7 – 1501 8th Street East right near the Safeway. The store is full of British foods, gifts, sweets and treats. My mom took me there as she was born in Liverpool and grew up in Wales. It was fun to watch her shop throughout the store, reminiscing about her childhood. When my grandparents, who lived in Wales, came to visit us in Canada they would always bring us Pear Drops. They are really hard to find in Canada but the Brit Store in Saskatoon has them!
They can be reached at 306-384-2748.
The SaskMade Marketplace in Saskatoon is located at 1621 8th Street East, across from the Sobey’s. I have bought a lot of local product there and have enjoyed all of it. I have bought chocolate, flour, candy, jams and beef jerkey. I recommend the store as much as I can so people will buy local. I also sell my Saskatchewan themed t-shirts there and have been for several years. They have always been supportive of me and the newest manager, Ken, has been fantastic and they are lucky to have him there.
The SaskMade Marketplace has a vision of bringing consumers and local farmers, producers and artisans together so we can understand more about our community and where things are made and specifically where our food comes from. They want to
“provide a wide range of unique, locally-produced food and non-food products to enrich your menu, your home and your wellbeing.”
If you look at this video you will see all the amazing products they have for sale including perogies, jams and jellies, sauces, flour, flax, peas, paintings, pictures, books, t-shirts, maple syrup, locally-grown beef and bison, pre-arranged gift buckets and even wines. This list is not exhaustive by any stretch as they have over a thousand products to choose from. They even have a Gift Bucket program where they can arrange custom gift buckets (or gift baskets) for your next event or celebration. The SaskMade Marketplace came under new ownership in January 2011 and the store has never looked better. Their contact information is:
