Crossroads Market has been a fixture in Calgary since the late 1980s. Over those years it has transformed into a great source for fine foodstuffs, fresh produce and a showcase for Albertan and Canadian artists in the Artspace Gallery. At the heart of the market is a 1920s heritage building that preserves a part of Calgary’s past. The Crossroads Market has given many entrepreneurs their start and they also support many charity events to support Calgarians.
There are 150 vendors in the indoor part of the market scattered in 100,000 square feet of space. There is also an outdoor market in the summer selling produce from Alberta and B.C. At the market you can find artisan breads and cheeses, high quality meats and fresh, organically grown vegetables and fruit. The indoor part of the market has restaurants offering food from many different ethnic communities and many vendors to tempt your taste buds. The flea market is full of many vendors selling movies, clothing, jewellery and almost anything you can imagine. There are also shops that sell beautifully crafted antiques and collectables.
Another integral part of the Crossroads Market is the Artspace Gallery. This is a cutting edge, contemporary gallery that exhibits the artistic talents of emerging Canadian and Alberta artists. You can see an explosion of different works in oil, watercolour, ceramic and other media. The Artspace Gallery also helps art students in Alberta exhibit their work, which helps them to gain recognition in the wider community. They’ve also got an cozy café that offers fine wines, cappuccinos and a light, elegant menu.
