Meal inspiration

Let’s be honest, deciding what you want to have for dinner can be one of the most difficult decisions of the day, and it’s easy to run out of ideas. But browsing through Urban Fare’s incredible selection of organic, local, and international fresh produce, which includes specialty fruit and vegetables as well as some hard-to-find bits, is sure to provide you with the meal inspo you need. 

You’ll also find some of the freshest sustainable seafood the West Coast has to offer, like BC oysters, wild-caught salmon, and succulent prawns. Expert butchers are on hand to advise you on the store’s selection of premium local and international meats and marinades, and to slice and trim your cuts the way you like them.

Meanwhile, there are also a number of carefully crafted, baked-in-store artisan breads to choose from, and, for those of us who are a little charcuterie board obsessed, Urban Fare’s wide range of fine cheeses from around the world and premium deli meats will not disappoint. 

Got a sweet tooth? Pick up some decadent cakes, pastries, or macarons for dessert.

From classic comfort foods like lasagna to lighter fare like salads, poke bowls, and sushi, you’ll find some seriously top-notch takeout – all made fresh in-store every day.

Be sure to check out the in-house carvery, which features rotisserie chicken and a premium herb-rubbed roast beef slow-roasted to perfection. Add a couple of sides, and you’ve got a hearty dinner. 

There’s also the Fresh Bar, where you can grab fresh-squeezed juices or fresh-cut fruit and veggies that make for perfect snacking on-the-go, as well as a coffee bar where you can grab a cappuccino, a cold brew, or a delicious pastry for a quick energy boost.
