Café Find: Le Marché St. George Vancouver

Le Marché St. George gives us a major case of shelf envy. The shady green corner grocery store and café in idyllic Riley Park, Vancouver curates hard-to-find food and home goods from more than 50 makers around the world, stretching from Argentina, Lithuania and all the way over to Brooklyn.

The intimate setting suggests Le Marché St. George is a place for slow-paced activities like knitting and watching leaves turn. And the simple pursuit of enjoying your milky latte from an oversized gilded bowl or devouring a smoked salmon quiche, oysters and wine remind us that these are the gentle, unhurried luxuries of life.

A potter by trade, owner Janaki Larsen and partner Pascal Roy curate the store in a way that creates a mildly French ambiance (Roy is from Montreal) inspired by the Mediterranean and a rustic, homemade sensibility.

All this, and the delightful display of creamy white ceramics made by Larsen, woven aprons, tins of imported sardines and dried flowers with the stream of locals popping in and out, beautifully captures the loveliness of Le Marché St. George’s community and the quotidian life.
