As an avid macaron connoisseur, I've made it my personal mission to taste test all the macarons that the city has to offer. (For research purposes of course.) Although Edmonton is sorely lacking in macaron options, there's a modest but growing selection, ranging from bakeries to home businesses. DandyLion Confections is one of them; a home bakery business making its rounds through various farmer's markets around the city.
Macarons are $2.00 each, and pre-packaged in packs of two, or boxes of five and ten. I would've preferred the opportunity to pick and choose my own flavours, but at least I was able try all DandyLion had to offer.
I believe flavours rotate every week, but no flavour list or legend was given, so it was a bit tough trying to decipher what some of the macarons were. Even now, I'm not 100% sure but these are my best guesses below:
Currently, DandyLion Confections are making appearances on Thursdays at the University of Alberta Farmer's Market (located in SUB) until April, and Saturdays at the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market until March. They also do special orders, which you can check out on Facebook and Instagram for more details and photos!
