La Tiendona Latino Market
Address: 1832 36 Street SE
Business Genre: ,
Long Business Description:

Born in Honduras, owner Luis Villatoro opened La Tiendona in Forest Lawn in 1993. The store sells authentic Latin American foods, most of which you won’t find in any big box grocery store in Calgary. You’ll find items here from countries such as Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina and Dominican Republic. There’s also a bulk section with sacks of lentils and flour, and large cans of jalapeos and beans.

La Tiendona is the kind of place where customers are greeted in Spanish and people stay a while, catching up like old friends. But there’s no need to be intimidated if it’s your first time, the English-speaking staff are happy to show you around and help you shop.

The first thing that you experience when you enter the doors to the Illichmanns Sausage Shop is the delicious aroma of smoked meats. The second thing although a bit more subtle is the warm, friendly atmosphere that’s been our trademark for more than 50 years! We have been making home made sausage without additives, fillers or preservatives before it was the popular thing to do, and we continue to pride ourselves on our traditional recipes. We only sell the best quality meats from high ends cuts of pork and beef, to home made sausage and bacon and everything in between. Our home-style curing, smoking, and fresh ingredients make it evident that our family’s heart and soul goes into making this Calgary’s best sausage shop.

Fantasy Donuts & Pretzels
Address: 3607 17 Ave SE
Long Business Description:

Owners Harley and Ping began baking pretzels as a way to nourish a picky child, who devoured all the pretzels they would make in their down time. As time went on, pretzels became the snack of choice among kids and friends. They couldn’t twist the dough fast enough to get it in the oven before little fingers started sneaking in. The opportunity arose to take over and purchase the donut business at a local city market, knowing this was something that needed to be incorporated into their business.  They’re now proudly baking both delicious snacks at their International Avenue retail storefront!
