Home of Craft Beer Commonwealth
Red Deer’s newest brewery and taproom Craft Beer Commonwealth is located in the Market Kitchen. Celebrating all things Alberta, they are focused on showcasing and collaborating with other Central Alberta breweries, malt growers and hop growers. You can’t get more local than that! You might even see the brewing in action while you sip on your beer!
There are currently three restaurants located in the Market Kitchen. The original Longhorn restaurant is based in Ponoka, and their new market restaurant the Longhorn Eatery is serving up delicious burgers, salads and wings. You may know them from the food truck, now Taco Monster have launched their first physical location with their signature tacos, as well as tots and lemonade. The Wooden Shoe (originally from Gull Lake) have croquettes, tosties and Irish fries on the menu as well as all your Dutch favourites! Birdy Coffee is also roasting coffee on site.
Our newest addition to the Market Kitchen is the Organic Ancient Grain Bakery by Dovganyuk. They were a popular vendor in the main market, and they are now making and baking on site from their new kitchen!
We have more restaurants opening in spring 2021. Watch this space!
Our brand new patio is open
We are delighted to say it’s officially patio season at the market! Situated on the west side of the market, our new patio gets all of the afternoon and evening sun. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a beverage and bite to eat.
The patio will be open during Market Kitchen hours, subject to the weather being on our side.
