In the freezer of this Bridgeland shop, you will find curried goat meat, oxtail, fish and jerk chicken. The shelves at the Joy's Caribbean Foods are stocked with African pepper sauces, palm oil, baking supplies, condiments, bags of rice and a large selection of canned and dried beans. A small selection of fresh produce includes hot peppers, plantain, cassava, and huge coco yams. Joy also serves up tasty Caribbean dishes such as Jamaican patties, but the limited seating means you might have to take your lunch to go.
One of Art Central's original tenants, Mary Pat Designs has earned a name for incorporating her flame-worked glass beads into her custom designed jewelery. It's not unusual to come into this store and find the artist at work on one of her dazzling creations. The artist uses semi-precious stones and glittering gems sourced from her travels to Asia and China. Apart from custom jewelery, this design shop also carries gifts and creative jewelery holders. So just bring in your outfit and request a piece of jewelery that complements your look. You can visit the space on Sundays too, but by appointment only.
Located in the arts district of downtown Calgary, this shop takes great pride in selling distinct Canadian-made crystals from Nova Scotia. The glass-works are still made in the time-honored tradition where craftsmen create masterpieces from fire and clay, which are mouth blown and then cut by hand. This second shop, NovaScotian Crystal, in Calgary is modern and trendy without sacrificing the timeless elegance of handmade crystal. There is a wide selection of crystal products such as bowls, candle holders, vases and even practical crystal items that lend function and beauty to any home. Beautiful gifts meant to stand the test of time.
As Calgary's Chinatown outgrows its downtown boundaries and spreads northwards, it brings jewels like this vast Asian supermarket in its wake. Lambda carries a huge selection of Asian foodstuffs (who knew there were this many varieties of dried noodles?) as well as an attached bakery, meat counter and tanks of live seafood. The prices are staggeringly low, the selection immense, and the store is always jammed with aged Asian women loading carts with the weird and wonderful. Maybe they know what all these strange-looking fruits are called.

The centuries old Hudson Bay Company's local flagship presides over downtown's Stephen Avenue Mall. Its white terra-cotta building boasts five floors of merchandise. The goods run the spectrum from inexpensive house brands to designer duds, often set up in well-defined areas. In other words, Tommy Hilfiger has his space while Ralph Lauren is down and over a bit on the men's wear floor. The basement encompasses the Market Square area, with fresh deli and bakery goods and endless floor space devoted to kitchen, bathroom and bedroom goods.
