Dirty Market | place | The chaotic Sun Rise Market at Powell and Gore has long been nicknamed “Dirty Market” by people in the restaurant business. It is more a term of endearment than an insult, for despite being the antithesis of the modern, hyper-sanitized supermarkets, it is patronized every day by discerning, ingredient-sourcing chefs who work in Gastown and the greater DTES.

Usage: “Fuck Whole Foods! My allegiance is to Dirty Market.” explore-the-lexicon
