THE MARKET SHOPPE
A TRULY ONTARIO GROCERY STORE
Celebrating Local Entrepreneurs, their Products and their Produce in Downtown Markdale
The Market Shoppe, your local grocery store, and SO MUCH MORE. We offer a little bit of everything, all made or grown right here in Ontario and as close to home as we can get it. After all, this is where we grew up and call home too. We offer only the best quality locally sourced produce, meats, cheeses and home cooked meals. The kind of quality we would serve to our own families and neighbours, because that's what our customers are to us. Come for a visit, and check out the wide variety of goods, from right here in our own backyard!
BAKED GOODS & FROZEN MEALS
We make a variety of fully cooked frozen meals. Dad started making these because of the love he put into making meals for his mother to help her remain living in her home in her last years. We knew it would help other families in this way as well as many others. We also have soups and pot pies that quickly heat up to make a satisfying meal. For dessert you have to try our cookies, apple crisp or pies!
LOCAL PRODUCE & MEATS
We source our produce as locally as we are able to. We have local year round suppliers for salad greens and micro greens but pull from greenhouses further south for things like tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. We have built relationships with farmers in our area to ensure we have fresh beautiful produce for our customers during our local growing season. We only carry Ontario produce. The variety of Ontario produce you can have year round might surprise some. To supplement, we are a pick up location for Produce Club. They are third generation in their family distributing produce in Ontario. These subscription boxes are the only way to get a banana or orange at the store. Their family‘s business, Pitt Produce, helps us bring in many Ontario fruits and vegetables year round.
Since we opened we have been carrying Jmar meats out of Mount Forest. We love the quality of their beef and pork! Our chicken, duck and rabbit come from Abate packers in Arthur. There is nothing more juicy and delicious than one of their bone-in, skin-on, air-chilled chicken thighs. The Abate family has been running their business there for so long that the farms that supply them have, in some cases, gone second generation.
ONTARIO MADE PRODUCTS
From day one our business model has been to carry only Ontario products. We have dozens of small family businesses that we support by carrying their amazing products! Ontario can provide us with so much! We are currently finalists in the first inaugural Ontario Made awards. To learn more about this amazing program click below.
By simply buying Ontario Made products, you will be directly supporting the thousands of manufacturers, retailers, and their employees across the province. This helps us grow a stronger economy for Ontarians. It's time for us to stand up and celebrate Ontario manufacturers and Ontario made products.
WHAT WE DO
Our roots are in the farmers’ markets and we have stayed true to bringing the best of Ontario to our beautiful community of Markdale. We opened our doors in September of 2013 and have evolved over the years into a truly Ontario grocery store. We love hearing about incredible Ontario products from our customers. We build strong relationships with our suppliers and believe all small business is in this together. We could not do what we do without hundreds of other Ontarians who get up each day and make or grow the high quality products we are so honoured to carry.

Thank you to everyone's continued support over the last 8 years. We have been chosen as the winner in this year's Ontario Made award for the Retailer Spotlight Award!
