Cultivating relationships with the very best local farms, products & artisans since 2007
We believe the creation of a local food system, built on principles of sustainability and biodiversity,
be both financially sustainable for farmers and affordable for consumers.
We've spent more than a decade developing personal relationships with close to 60 local farmers and their
families built on respect and trust as we're determined to help them grow. We want to put more
into local farms so they can continue to grow the most nutritious and delicious produce while preserving
farmland and biodiversity around Toronto.

We sought out to help you find the best of the best in sustainable Canadian seafood. Fisherfolk delivers the goods by working directly with the real ‘fisherfolk’ (they’ve been out on the boats and everything) just to be 1,000% sure that they never overfish (scout’s honour!).
