Alternatives to Pusateris

I adore Pusateris for the selection of gourmetish items, including the imported deli and cheese sections. Any other places that are chowworthy for gourmet groceries, not just a gourmet gift shop?

  1. For deli, oils and condiments, La Salumeria on Yonge north of Davisville is very good.

    1. Summerhill Market in Rosedale or Sherwood Market on Mt. Pleasant...both very enjoyable shopping experiences.

      1. Whole Foods
        The Cheese Boutique

          Second Bueno's choices above add Cumbrae's meat and Provincial Foods next door to Cumbrae's on Church st. Grande Cheese Woodbridge.

          481 Church St, Toronto, ON M4Y, CA

        2. I have no issues with any of the places listed above. However, my alternative to Pusateri's is the St Lawrence Market Saturday's before 10am and preferably before 9am. Less expensive than all of these stores, yet quality and variety can definitely be found.

            Yes!, this is a must for me every saturday morning (just came back with lots of serrano, pastries, bread, crabcakes, veal, pepperrettes). I love StLM

          2. Grande Cheese outlet (one is on Orfus Road but there are, I think, 3 or 4 - all carry the same stuff) has a lot of Italian groceries, quite a lot of cheese (not just Italian) and a pretty good selection of deli. It's a no-frills place but good.
