Food shopping in Edmonton

Realize the original post is old but wanted to mention B&A Bakery on the north side as a good source for rye bread. My german mother-in-law is partial to Empress Bakery for her rye bread in the same strip as K & K Deli.

looking for andouille sausage and okra in Edmonton

I realize this thread is old but did want to confirm that Butcher Block in Sherwood Park has frozen andouille sausage available. I just purchased some yesterday and have yet to make use of it. I just wanted to add that I thought the biggest challenge would be finding gumbo file powder but it wasn't as elusive as I anticipated. I made a trip to Sunterra's on the south side of Edmonton and they have Paul Prudhommes Gumbo File powder. Now I'm ready to try making a chicken gumbo recipe I recently came accross that sounds promising. Will provide an update once I've tried out both products.
