October Influencer – Phil Wilson

We are so excited to announce that our October 124 Grand Market Influencer of the Month is Edmonton-based food writer and blogger, Phil Wilson! 

Phil is the writer behind baconhound.com, an acclaimed local blog that is focussed on finding the best food, and highlighting the people that make it! From time-to-time, you’ll also find the occasional travel story, homemade recipe, or food related tidbit on the blog.  

“Whether it’s the best in burgers, the most mouthwatering pizza, or some mind blowing fried chicken, I’m going to thoroughly analyze them all and tell you where to spend your hard earned money.” – Phil Wilson 

Not only is Phil an incredible food writer and critic – he’s also a top-notch advocate for our city’s local food community. From his videos with Edmonton Tourism about our city’s local coffee scene to his appearances on Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here, Phil consistently supports local Edmonton restaurants, coffee shops, chef’s, and more! 

Most of Phil’s time, these days, is spent hosting the CBC web series called “Fast Food”. He is also on a monthly call in show on CBC Alberta at noon!

We are pumped to have Phil as our 124 Grand Market October Influencer of the month! Be sure to follow him on Twitter @baconhound and on Instagram @realbaconhound,  and don't forget to say hi if you see him at the market!
