Canal Market is famous local foodservice personality Ericka Burke’s post-Volunteer Park Cafe endeavor in the Portage Bay neighborhood. The idea is similar to Cone & Steiner in the 19th Ave corridor in Capitol Hill, but maybe a bit more complex, with fresh pastries, opportunity for sit-down breakfast and lunch service.
According to the Canal Market’s website, the market is “a modern-day take on an old-fashioned mercantile, offering a varied selection of groceries and home goods.” The market offers a full breakfast buffet, ready-made salads, cheeses, and charcuterie, as well sandwiches. It is also a pretty good place for gifts.
Canal Market started selling Locus Wines (specifically the 2014 Locus Rosé) in June/July time frame and we at Locus appreciate that very much. Portage Bay, consider yourself saved, thanks to Ericka Burke.
