Who doesn’t love a good soft opening? Relax that jaw and open wide because this week, you can finally sink your teeth into the wide variety of grub offered at Calgary’s First Street Market, an urban food hall featuring some of the best and brightest in the restaurant industry.

Located smack dab in the middle of downtown, this one-of-a-kind spot offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and even coffee for those who are in a rush.

With fresh ingredients and recipes all over the world, First Street has 9 different eateries, a bar, and a collection of local chefs who are at the top of their game.

One of these food wizards? Chef Mike Pigot, the man, the myth, the legend who brought a number of ghost kitchens to life through the height of the pandemic including Friends With Benedicts – a spot that coincidentally you can actually enjoy at the hall!
