Farm Boy is now open at Leslie and Lakeshore in Toronto’s east end.

The supermarket has launched, at an already busy intersection for groceries, with farm-fresh produce and organic, natural and locally sourced foods.

The 20,038 sq. ft. location, its second in the GTA, will employ 130 and offers a wide variety of products including butcher-quality meats, artisan cheese, fresh dairy and chef-inspired meals.

The store also features a fast-casual restaurant experience including made-to-order pizzas and fresh sushi. The store will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner with daily features such as grilled paninis, seared Farm Boy sausages and gourmet grilled cheese. Shoppers can take the meals home or dine in the store’s eating area, which will be WiFi enabled.

“Offering healthy, fresh, wholesome foods and friendly service has been the heart and soul of our business since 1981,” Jeff York, Farm Boy co-CEO, said in a statement.

Farm Boy opened its first Toronto store in Etobicoke last March. The supermarket chain currently operates 27 locations in Ontario.

Farm Boy is located at 1015 Lake Shore Blvd. E. Visit farmboy.ca for more information.
