We believe the creation of a local food system, built on principles of sustainability and biodiversity, can
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. These partnerships are built on respect and trust as we're determined to help them grow. We want
to put more food dollars into local farms so they can continue to grow the most nutritious and delicious
produce while preserving farmland and biodiversity around Toronto.

It's everything you want in seafood
...and nothing you don't
We recently discovered the greatest Canadian seafood company, ever. Fisherfolk is a
company with a boatload of integrity, the kind that comes from the humble beginnings of selling 10 lbs of
seafood at the market (kinda like how we started out with 10 deliveries to our neighbours from our garage —
seriously, we're like sole-mates!). Anyway, Fisherfolk's got the best tasting Canadian sourced seafood, that
actually stays in Canada to be processed and packaged (I know that seems weird, but look at some of the
labels out there!).
Who knew good fish was so much more than great taste?!
And don't worry, Fisherfolk works 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!). Plus, they pay their folk
fairly so that they can afford to take care of our delicate lakes and, oceans too.
Do good by you, and the earth too! We love it when everybody wins ... did we mention that we (Heart)

Our In-House Kitchen
We're always trying to build out the local food system and so in 2018 we decided to build our own state of
the art kitchen as a natural extension of our farm fresh products. (It was like grocery shopping when you're
hungry, nothing was off limits). Mama's Kitchen started with a team of top-notch chefs and experts creating
dishes from scratch each morning in the spirit of home cooking.
Our executive chef and team of food experts in Mama's Kitchen create seasonal salads, prepared meals, sides,
soups and baked goods from scratch inspired by our local farms and seasons.
