What's new at 5th St Food Hall? March fundraiser, Tomato Top100, upcoming events, and more.


What's New and Exciting on the Menu?

While there is almost always something new at 5th St Food Hall, we want to make sure you know about some of the latest noteworthy dishes.

  • GNUDI by Chef Cam Nelson opened back in February and offers handcrafted, delicious pasta dishes, including Gnudi, Bolognese Tortellini, Penne Carbonara, and more. Pictured is the Wild Mushroom Risotto - as delicious as it looks!

  • MEAT SHACK BARBECUE has its smoked wings on special every Thursday - don't miss out!

  • OILBURGERS participated in the #BurgerItForward campaign with its Big McD burger. Thanks to your support, we sold 129 of the feature burger and helped raise funds in support of Food Bank Canada!

  • SEITANS's current pizza feature is the Reuben Pizza (Seitan’s thousand Island dressing, house made corn beaf, sauerkraut, pickles, smoked mozza, green onions). Try it before it's gone! PS: Have you heard that Die Pie is coming back soon?


March Fundraiser

Throughout March, $1 from every Banded Peak Beer sale will be donated to the Bissell Centre.

Everything Bissell Centre does is grounded in its vision of eliminating poverty. Their mission is to empower people to move from poverty to cultural, social and economic prosperity, by working with communities. Visit for more details.


Tomato Top100 2023

We're excited to announce that several dishes available at 5th St made the Tomato Top100 2023 list of things to eat or drink in Edmonton!


64. Donair Pizza, Seitans

Seitans continues to offer diverse and delicious vegan options.

“The Donair pizza is a masterpiece. It started as a weekly special but made it on the regular menu, for a reason. The cheezes (vegan cheese), pizza dough, poutine sauce and all of the other sauces are made in house,” Rina A.

“The Christmas roast and eggnog cake wasn’t just delicious, it was reasonably priced. Everything they make is off the charts,” Angel C.

67. Beef Brisket, Meat Shack Barbecue

“I’d love to nominate Meat Shack Barbecue for their tender, juicy, melt-in-your-mouth beef brisket. The best Texas barbecue in the city, hands down!” Jennifer K.


Upcoming Events at 5th St Food Hall

Weekly happenings:

  • Power Hour: every Tuesday to Friday from 4 to 6PM, cocktails are on special.

  • Tap Out Tuesday: every Tuesday, all our local draft beers are $5!

  • Thicc Thursdays: your favorite pizza from Seitan's... as a Detroit-style deep dish!

  • Wings & Beer Thursdays: grab a pound of Meat Shack Barbecue's smoked wings and an Alley Kat draft beer and save $$$!
