Participants will receive a special ingredient for the cooking portion of the event that was sent by Beatriz from Mexico City. Continue »



Turkey time!

Hi Everyone!

Today we’re talking about taking turkey orders

Between September 24th-October 6th, please call 416-537-1235 and ask for Kelly or Antonio to coordinate size and pickup.

We’re carrying 3 kinds: 

  • Rowe Farms (Antibiotic and Hormone Free) between 8-18 lbs
  • Fenwood (Antibiotic and Hormone Free) between 14-16 lbs

Hopefully family dinners with intensely political uncles will be more tolerable now that you can mute them.

We are justifiably proud about the diversity of this city and regularly boast about the wealth of ingredients from all over the world that we are able to access readily. But just because we can buy these ingredients doesn’t necessarily mean we know how best to cook with them. Today we want to highlight a new initiative by one of this city’s most beloved charity organizations – one that delves into world cuisine with delicious recipes taught by refugees from their home countries.  Continue »



Bottle Drive!

Good news for a change.

We’re ready to take back all those bottles you’ve been hoarding.

Please:

  • Review the list of bottles we’re accepting
  • Clean them
  • Drop them off on Sunday, July 12th, behind the store
  • Receive your deposit or leave it as a donation in support of St. Clair Supports The Stop!

Led by local business Cocoa Latte, the program raises money for St. Clair chefs and stores who prepare hundreds of healthy, wholesome takeout meals for The Stop’s Wychwood Open Doors— a drop-in centre that works with neighbours experiencing issues like homelessness.

It’s a win/win/win (a theme lately). Count ’em:

  1. Get back your space
  2. Support local businesses
  3. Help neighbours most deeply impacted by COVID-19
