Beer, dads and Italian Street Food!  June has something for everyone!


Craft Beer Weekend – Thursday June 1st to Sunday June 4th

Beer is fantastic in sausage! Ales, lagers, stouts, pilsners… they each bring their unique flavours and characteristics to the mix.  So for Vancouver’s Craft Beer Week, we use some of our favourite local brews to make a variety of beer-filled bratwurst and salami!


Piadinas  – Saturday June 10th

This weekend we will be introducing Vancouver to the Piadina!  A cross between pita bread and a tortilla, the Piadina is a traditional Italian street food from the Romagna region.  Piadinas are stuffed with tasty ingredients like prosciutto, salami, veggies and cheese!  We will be cooking them up at the store and handing out samples to hungry customers!


Father’s Day Weekend – Friday June 16th to Sunday June 18th


For all the dads out there who deserve some special recognition this weekend! We will have lots of favourites for the grill like Prime Rib beef and Bourbon Chipotle pork sausages. Also lots of tasty salamis and cool treats like Smoked Bison and Wild Boar prosciutto.


Pasture-raised pork – Giesbrecht Farms – Thursday June 22nd to Sunday June 25th

Our “micro-farm” partner for June is Giesbrecht Farms located in Aldergrove, B.C.  Since 1993 Brian Giesbrecht has been raising free-range heritage pigs such as Berkshire and Tamworth on this small farm.  These pigs get amazing food primarily consisting of assorted nuts, alfalfa hay and overflow produce from local grocery stores!  Look for lots of products made with Giesbrecht pork this week at Oyama.


Canada Day Weekend – Thursday June 29th to Sunday July 2nd

Canada is turning 150 years old!  Granville Island always has so much going on during the Canada Day weekend and this year is no exception.  For your own celebrations, we have some amazing food that is perfect for the backyard grill or your weekend out of town!  Elk and Bison smokies, Maple Breakfast sausages – unique Canadian taste!
