On September 6, 2013 John Szabo wrote on WineAlign: Canadian wine consumers can look forward to another option for sourcing and purchasing top local wines. Foodiepages.ca, a Toronto-based e-commerce site that connects Canadian food and drink makers with consumers, is launching an online Canadian wine boutique in September. The virtual shop will enable Canadians coast to coast to purchase small lot Canadian wines from any province, expanding access well beyond the often limited selection found on liquor board shelves (you’ll find some of my wine recommendations on the site).
On August 26, 2013 Michael Godel wrote on o.canada.com: A wide range of Canadian wines that aren’t available through provincial liquor stores are marketed on the Foodie Pages website, but the actual buying and selling is direct with the winery. If, as a Canadian winery, you can’t meet LCBO requirements such as producing and offering 300 cases of a particular product, you can likely forget about finding shelf space. This is where Foodie Pages comes in, to help the little guy enable connections.

"Discover Canadian foodmakers!" instructs FoodiePages, and we`ll happily oblige. The website—launched this month, presumably in the wake of our tweet lamenting the lack of a Good Eggs program up North—is like an online farmers market, or more accurately, a gourmand`s Etsy. Food producers from all over the country hawk their wares, so you can pick up salted caramel peanut butter from Vancouver`s Monkey Butter, wild rosehip spread from Saskatchewan`s Fresh Air Flavours, or butternut and beer chutney from Ontario. , without having to fight the market crowds. We particularly love the region-sorting feature—now the taste of Calgary (or Winnipeg or New Brunswick) is only a click away. If you`ll excuse us, we have some shopping to do.
