Vendor Spotlight: Ying Fat Food Products Ltd.

Allow us to introduce you to Ying Fat Food Products Ltd., makers and purveyors of superior quality tofu.

Tofu-front

We Edmontonians have much to be proud of, what with having more farmers’ markets than we can shake a stick at, and our summer festivals abound. But few people realize how fortunate we are to have a tofu factory nestled in our very own Chinatown.  Fresh-made tofu is something few people get to experience, and unless you’ve tasted it (or felt it… it might be more of a texture thing), you might never know what you were missing. With Ying Fat in town and open to the public, Edmontonians have unbridled access to fresh, scrumptrilescent tofu.

Ying Fat already provides many local restaurants with tofu, and we’re delighted to announce that they’ll be supplying us with individual portions of their house-made sweetened dessert tofu, or dau fu fa, to sell for a bargain at the 97th Street Night Market.

A couple weeks ago, I had a chance to visit Ying Fat and explore the wonders of Alberta’s only tofu factory. Thanks to May Ying for letting me look around and take these photos to share!
