Kensington Market, STL market or Brickworks or none

Going to TO in October (week after Thanksgiving) and want grass fed beef, higher quality pork, great quality eggs, unique European locally grown organic and reg vaggies.

I could do all three.

  1. Check out Fresh From the Farm on Donlands Avenue. I believe you'll find everything you need there. Hours are sketchy so best to check their website first.

    1. For veggies - tons of options, try wychwood barns - near st clair and ossington - weekly farmers market or dufferin grove farmers market. For Meats best bet is St Lawrence south hall - ditto for cheeses Alex Farms rear of south market is excellent. Of the three - St Lawrence is your place for meats, cheeses etc.

      1. For meats Cumbrae Farms on Church or European Quality meats on Baldwin (Kensington Mkt)
        Not sure about "European veggies" but Harvest Wagon at Summerhill and Yonge has every veggie imaginable..all are pricey but worth the trip..While in that hood, (Yonge and Summerhill)
        Oliffe butchers has great beef/pork too. Google all of the above for more info.

        1. Thanks for the recommendations. Now, European meats rings a bell. I think I had read it on here many months (years) ago.

          1. If you are looking for a retail store for high quality organic meat, you must try The Healthy Butcher (on Queen or Eglinton. Eglinton is the larger store). Absolutely superb meat.
