Update on Canal Market via AlwaysFreshGoodness
Canal Market isn’t quite ready to open, but Ericka Burke is too excited to bring her selection of curated goods to the neighborhood—so she’s hosting a pop-up shop right next door! The shop will open for business at 2917 Fuhrman Ave E on November 22. The shop will be open Tuesday – Sunday, from 10am – 7pm, all the way up until Christmas Eve, when the shop will close at 3pm.
Visitors can expect a darling array of perfect gifts—Burke has been seeking out all her favorite things to sell at Canal Market, and has a perfect selection chosen for the holidays. Culinary wares like high-quality olive oils and vinegars will be available, as well as gourmet nut butters, honeys, jams, and chocolates. Three kinds of Volunteer Park Cafe’s famous granola will be on offer, as well as bags of cookies and jars of caramel and chocolate sauce for the sweet tooth on your list. There’ll be lotions, soaps, and linens, plus an adorable selection of handmade baby and children’s gifts, like blankets, aprons, and toys.
July Floral (julyfloraldesign.com) will provide holiday bouquets and wreaths, and both Bremelo Press (bremelopress.com) and Dahlia Press (dahliapress.com) will offer a sweet selection of letter pressed stationary, holiday cards, and gift-wrap. Gift-wrapping for purchases made at the shop will be available as well!
Holiday Pies can be ordered and picked up at Canal Market — Organic Pumpkin, Organic Apple, and Chocolate Pecan are all available for $32 each.
Burke is excited to host three wine tastings at the space, on three Tuesdays: November 25, December 9, and December 16. All of the tastings will be from 5pm – 7pm, and will showcase some of Burke’s favorite wines for the holiday table. They’ll all come from boutique wineries and from winemakers she admires, that are dedicated to taking care of the land as well as producing great wines.
Slate Coffee espresso drinks and cups of pour-over coffee will be available daily, as will a handful of great pastries from VPC—shopping fuel! Burke is excited to start getting to know her Portage Bay neighbors better, and welcomes all to come and do their holiday shopping at the pop-up. Additional local artisans will be featured throughout the pop-up, so stay tuned!
Per the new Canal Market website, opening is scheduled for February 2015.
