Ingredients Artisan Market has brought the world to Saskatoon. A visit to Ingredients is like jet-setting around the world without ever having to experience the turbulence. From uniquely-crafted local products to high-end artisan goods from across the globe, at Ingredients there are so many amazing things to discover. Inspired by world travel and a passion for terroir products you will find everything needed for a French picnic at the ready.

When you walk through the doors at Ingredients, you are greeted by a stunning display of world-class wines in a specially designed floor-to-ceiling cabinet. These wines and spirits offer a tantalizing glimpse of the large selection to be found just around the corner at the top of the stairs.

Carrying over 300 types of wine and over 350 varieties of craft beer as well as numerous brands of spirits not sold anywhere else in the city, Ingredients has something for every taste and every budget. Ingredients sells the seven craft beers brewed just upstairs at the Saskatoon Brewing Company in bottles, kegs or a refillable growler. In addition, domestic off-sale is available. Visit the shop on Friday or Saturday and sample some of the premier wines under the guidance of an experienced sommelier at their sleek, ultramodern sampling table or purchase a gift card to use in the self-serve wine tasting bars any day.

If a mouth-watering cup of coffee is more to your taste, Ingredients offers the finest NYC coffee at its marble-tiled, Italian-style coffee bar. There is an exclusive selection of Kobrick’s organic, fair-trade coffee available – choose a bag of beans to take home, or settle into a chair at one of the tables in the store or patio and enjoy a cappuccino brewed in the eye-catching chrome Elektra coffee machine. A delicious sandwich with some salad, olives and Brooklyn Brine Pickles from the shop’s recently-opened deli makes the perfect addition to your tasty cup of coffee.

The owners and staff of Ingredients take great pride in being able to offer customers so many unique artisan foods from all over the world. There are heritage eggs from a farm just outside the city and cheeses from Quebec, pastas and olive oils from Italy, candies from Paris, and, of course, cigars from Cuba. They even carry Bove’s Pasta Sauces, including the Roasted Garlic Sauce which was TV chef Melissa d’Arabian’s pick on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” garlic episode.

All these incredible, carefully selected foods and beverages are displayed in a beautiful, warm, rustic setting. Spacious with a light and airy feel, Ingredients Artisan Market brings together classic and contemporary decor in a delightful blend that matches the wonderful variety of local and international products found on its shelves. The store’s very knowledgeable and friendly staff can answer all your product questions, and if you are shopping for a gift, they will help you put together the perfect gift basket full of savoury treats.
