It's been a few years since the last grocery store chain packed up and left downtown Saskatoon.
That's opened the market for a new independent venture. Two well-respected food establishments are joining efforts to bring a grocery store to downtown Saskatoon. While the store will have a range of goods, it will focus front and centre on locally-produced foods. That's not surprising considering the two partners: Calories restaurant, where the menu is local and seasonal, and Pine View Farms, purveyor of naturally-rasied meat. Accodring to a newspaper article, the store is set to open this spring or summer.
Their grocery store will be called Souleio - Provançal for "sun."
