Trinity Market

Trinity Market is just steps from Trinity Bellwoods Park. It's a bottle-shop, wine bar, cafe and ceramics shop packed neatly into a bright 500 sq. ft. space.

Co-owners Matt Dean Pettit and Javier Castillo tell me "every square foot is thought out". The space may be lean but it's maximized for a fun snacking experience.

The Nicholas Pearce bottle of sparkling from Prince Edward County is $29 but "drinks like an $80 bottle" promises Pettit. It tastes like warm bread which is a lovely note- plus it's vegan.

It's such a refreshing way to learn and enjoy wine. The whole concept takes away the pretentiousness that may come with sipping and just makes it fun and easy-going.

Trinity Market operates under an interesting philosophy of community. In order to not compete with its neighbours, they actually source their food from them. Char Pep Pizza ($6.50) is fresh from Noce across the street. There's also a Veggie Pizza ($6.50) with white Sauce, zucchini, and gorgonzola.

They also don't sell any regular coffee because they rather people went next door to The Roasted Nut which they can feel free to bring over. Instead, they have a unique Mushroom Coffee ($3) that you can't get anywhere else.

All the food can be taken to go, which would make grabbing a picnic spread for the park an easy task. 

trinity marketThe Charcuterie Plate ($13) which includes rotating three meats and house pickles with Kozlik's mustard or Empanadas ($6) from Gaucho Pie are solid picks.

trinity marketThere's also lots of non-alcoholic options in the fridge like Piquette ($8) and Edna's ($8).

trinity marketThis Foccacia topped with cheese, mortadella and pesto-which was the Daily Snack Special ($7)- was honestly hauntingly delicious.

trinity marketDue to the size and location of the space, it's meant to be a transient place. Pettit hopes "we can take you away for a bit - maybe over an 8 minute flute of champagne."
