Fine Food Retailers Close to Your Community

Although shopping at mass food retailers might be highly convenient for the busy family, more and more people are finding time to seek out more sophisticated or health conscious food items for their weekly grocery run as our taste palates expand with bold new flavours and our appetite for healthy food options begin to flourish.  Perhaps you enjoy entertaining foodie friends in your new house or new condo, and experimenting with exciting and exotic ingredients has become your new passion. Then again, you might be seeking an alternative diet to appeal to those who might be newly vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, paleo or any variety or combination of dietary regimes. Shopping at fine food retailers makes finding what you need for your dietary needs much easier and enjoyable. For many, discussing where the food comes from and how it’s produced directly with the butcher, fish monger, grocer…etc can make you feel good about the food you bring home to your new house or condo.  Here are some locally owned fine food retailers which if you haven’t discovered already, are a great place to buy quality food items your whole family can enjoy:

Stuart Carroll Quality Meats is located in the York Farmers Market where you can find premium beef, pork, lamb, veal and chicken. Stuart Carroll himself has travelled to PEI to meet the farmers and see firsthand the cattle he is buying and their surroundings. The fact that these animals are free to graze in the salty ocean breeze of the Maritimes and where they are always given access to fresh air and uncrowded conditions results in amazing flavour. All of their beef is then aged for a minimum of 28 days to ensure perfection. The same passion for quality and flavour can be found in their locally raised fresh Ontario pork, fresh lamb and veal, and air chilled free run chicken from a farm only 4km from Stuart Carroll’s home. http://www.stuartcarroll.ca/
