Dear customers,

It is with the sad feeling that we have informed you that FLAVOUR TRADER is closing definitely in Yellowknife.


Thank you for your support along the way. Was such a pleasure to had you all as a guest at the restaurant or during an event. I am going back to Québec after 10 years of amazing moments. I am going to continue my life mission to learn to grow organic veggies on my own land, one day, in Québec close to my family.


Thank you for everything, this journey was quite an adventure and I have grown so much and will never be enough gratefully for all of you who made me stronger. 

I wish you the best of luck in the North and it is not a goodbye, I will be back in November.

Yellowknife, I will miss you. 

                                                                  Stay safe!

                                                                  Chef Etienne

If food is art, Flavour Trader has the right mix to make beautiful food. The beef chilli with black bean salsa and salsa verde was food worth buying (like better than you can make at home). Life can be short, so make the most of your lunch hour, check out Flavour Trader!

I'm from Vancouver, and attended a work conference in Yellowknife just last week. Flavour Traders catered the food for the two day conference. I'm a real foodie and I was so impressed with the food. Everyone at the conference was talking about how delicious the breakfast and lunches were. It's just too bad that he's located so far away from Vancouver!

Flavour Trader catered our private party for our new building grand opening and it was FABULOUS. the food was delicate and delicious; the guests were all very impressed. The professionalism was top notch, and Etienne was a joy to deal with during booking, planning, and at the event. I cannot say enough. I recommend Flavour Trader wholeheartedly.
