Darrell Jones, president of Save-On-Foods (parent company to Urban Fare) says, “We know that Calgarians love food as much as we do, and that made the decision to open this location a natural one.”

Here’s what to expect from the 26,869 sq. ft. Urban Fare, now open at Calgary’s Mount Royal:

Fresh produce

Urban Fare

Urban Fare is famous for its high standards of quality and freshness — and it’s obvious when you walk into their fresh produce department. With an amazing selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as exotic specialties and hard-to-find ingredients, you’ll be able to fully stock your fridge.

Meats and cheeses

Urban Fare

If you’re a meat-lover, you’ll be in heaven when you see Urban Fare’s full-serve butcher case with the best cuts of local beef, all-natural pork, dry-aged steaks, house-made sausages, fresh authentic Wagyu beef, and more.

Be sure to check out the cheese counter, which is stocked with hundreds of artisan cheese from around the world. Whatever you’re looking for, you name it. They’ve got it.

At Urban Fare, you can also take a seat at their Charcuterie and Wine Bar, where you can enjoy expertly curated boards of meats and cheeses, paired perfectly with a glass of wine or local craft beer.

Delicious food offerings

Urban Fare

At Urban Fare’s restaurant, you’ll be able to find an abundance of delicious foods, including handcrafted sushi, poke bowls made to order, a daily hot carvery, artisan pizzas, gourmet sandwiches grilled to order, a hot buffet, and a soup and fresh salad bar. And a Starbucks, too! Talk about endless choices.

Deli counter

Urban Fare

At Urban Fare’s deli counter, you will find all the natural cuts, as well as several premium exports, such as their 24-month aged prosciutto from Parma, Italy. A tip from us; ask for a sample of their house-made roast beef or glazed ham. It’s unbeatable.

Yes, Urban Fare has the good stuff. But they’ve also got all your grocery basics, so you can find everything you need to stock your pantry.

Finally, a convenient way to grab a gourmet meal, have a glass of wine or craft beer, and shop for groceries, all in one place! Plus, you can earn valuable rewards points you can redeem on food products, gift cards and travel.
