Service Updates from Fresh Market Kitchen

Well..hello there! Long time no speak 🙂 – It’s Chef Casey from Fresh Market Kitchen checking in to let you know what has been going on over at Fresh Market Kitchen in Selkirk, Ontario.

We are hosting our fourth Kids Kitchen Class this evening where Chef Casey will teach a hands-on class to 8 young budding chefs on the art of making pesto turkey meatball subs and chewy chocolate chip cookies. It is an opportunity for our youth to get their hands dirty, literally, and learn some life skills in a supportive nonjudgmental environment. They have enjoyed our past classes and always look forward to the next one! There are only 2 more classes planned for the kiddos for the remainder of this year plus a PA Day workshop for our teens and tweens. Adults, we have you covered too! We have couples’ classes, ladies only, mixed classes and basic skills classes. There is literally something for just about every body! We have also been booking private chef classes for small groups – great idea for a ladies get-together or a team building exercise for work colleagues. Reach out and see what we can put together for you.

Frozen Meal Delivery: We have expanded our circle for delivery and the schedule is below. The process is simple…head to our website at freshmarketkitchen.ca and click SHOP to place your order for delivery. If you know that you will not be home on the day of your delivery, we just ask that you leave a cooler out on the porch and we will safely deposit your order in there. Easy peasy! Here is the delivery schedule:

A Message of Hope From Fresh Market Kitchen, Selkirk

A few weeks ago, we announced that Fresh Market Kitchen was closing its front door to the public. We said goodbye to our amazing team and locked the door. We began selling decor items and some equipment that we knew we could not take to a smaller space. The original plan was to move out of Selkirk and start over in a smaller location. While soul searching and trying to reconcile this heartbreaking decision over the last number of weeks, we were forced to examine the worldwide covid situation as well as my own personal mental health and well-being and, once again, pivot and evolve in order to keep the dream alive – to provide upscale, friendly and approachable restaurant-quality food. So…with that in mind, Fresh Market Kitchen, while still remaining closed to the public on a day-to-day basis, is remaining in Selkirk, Ontario and will continue to run as a commissary kitchen with Chef Casey preparing frozen meals, frozen bbq, soups, pickles and desserts available to order via our website and delivery only (very soon!). Caveman Rob and I literally built this kitchen with our own four hands, transforming what was once a thriving hardware store and then a successful motorcycle shop to the kitchen you have come to know and love.

What’s next for Fresh Market Kitchen?? Classes and private chef events will be a huge focus for Fresh Market Kitchen in this ever changing world, and now you and other like-minded individuals have the opportunity learn in the safety of my large open-style commissary kitchen in Selkirk in a very small setting without judgement, learning top tips, new techniques and enjoying delicious approachable food made from scratch.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind words of encouragement and support throughout this extremely difficult transition. It has been a very difficult decision for the business and mainly for my own personal mental and physical health, but I just can’t imagine not cooking…not creating…not doing what I love most…and that is cooking from the heart, family style with style.

From our family to yours, we continue wish you great food with friends and family.

A Message From Fresh Market Kitchen, Selkirk

It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you that, effective immediately, Fresh Market Kitchen, Selkirk, is closing its front door to the public. Please know that we did our very best to fight through all of the restrictions and hardship that Covid thrust upon us from the moment we opened our very own bricks and mortar, but the task of operating a take-out service has become too great and we are no longer able to serve you personally in our kitchen. We have had to say goodbye to all of our dedicated and extremely hard-working team, and we know you will be as sad as we are not to see their smiling faces greet you in our kitchen. We feel privileged to have met and served such wonderful people in our community, and it has been our pleasure to welcome you to our kitchen in Selkirk. We hope that we always made you feel welcome and part of our family and that we have helped create some wonderful memories for you and your families around your kitchen table. We hope to see you very soon at a festival or private event in the very near future.

From our family to yours, we wish you great food with friends and family
