Vancouver's 1st e-Groceteria Opens Today

Vancouver's first #e groceteria has been quietly open since the weekend but it officially opens today at the bottom of the Anchor Point building at Burrard and Drake (1308 Burrard).

Says owner Glenn Saunders, "Our space is small, but we're making chef-inspired take home meals, pickles, mustard ... whatever turns our crank each day. We're also looking at offering a modern version of the TV dinner."

It sounds like they may be well positioned to serve the demographic that will move into the area when Umberto's il Giardino is bulldozed for a condo/residential development later this year. In fact, they are close enough to another new enterprise, Long Table Distillery, to make one wonder if the area could become a budding, entrepreneurial food zone for the city.

You can check out #e groceteria's concept and new menu at or follow them on twitter at @number_e_van.
