In 1977, Al and Margaret Waters built a small grocery shop at 4th and Edward, the centre of Revelstoke's "Little Italy." As patrons voiced a desire for a taste of their roots, Southside Market embraced its new role in the community as a specialty Italian grocery.
Today, we have the same philosophy of introducing to Revelstoke a taste of home. In honour of our past (and also because we love prosciutto), we will always bring in Italian specialty goods. But we're also looking to the future and to the rest of the world.
If home is where the heart is, then we've left our hearts all over the place! From Greece to Vietnam, we're excited to share our experiences and hope that you will share yours. A delicious adventure at Southside Market awaits as we bring in specialty products from across the globe: foods that will take us to other countries and fresh ingredients that will bring us back home.
Whenever possible, we support local growers and suppliers because we know that good things grow in Canada. From local meats to seasonal produce, we are committed to providing the best possible for our community.
Living in Revelstoke, we also understand the difficulty of getting everything you need in town. We do our best to bring in a large variety of products, whether it is gluten free, organic or sourced from the opposite side of the world!
We just recently joined Southside Market in October of 2016. We moved from Toronto to start our new adventure and we're so excited to be here in Revelstoke!
You can always find at least one of us running around the store, so don't be shy and say hello! If you need an ice breaker though, Chris was a former ski racer and I'm an amateur climber.
