Favourite New Hideway: Le Marché St. George

Tucked away in a quiet residential neighbourhood off Main Street, at the corner of East 28th and St. George, is the marvellous Marché St. George. Part café, part artisanal grocer, part lifestyle store and textile merchant, Le Marché is an absolute gem of a little shop, with fabulous coffees, teas, baked goods and comfy spots to sit and contemplate life. After hearing about Le Marché from friends who knew it would be right up my alley, I finally had a chance to stop by this week for a quick visit and to pick up a Paris Fog to go - a delicious tea latte made with Harney and Sons' Paris tea, steamed milk and vanilla. It was the perfect drink for a rainy December afternoon. I'll be going back to sit in a window seat with my pen, paper and a big cup of tea sometime soon...Le Marché is a place to be savoured rather than gulped.


Lots of gifts for foodies here, and a number of locally sourced products.

Christmas trees from Columbia Valley Tree Farm.

Comfy bench for sitting - maybe not on such a rainy day.
