In the age of COVID-19, curbside pickups and provincial lockdowns, we’re all trying to adapt our routines to be more convenient and, most importantly, safer. But convenience and distance often means ordering from big box stores – or at least it used to. Introducing the Best of Byward, a one-stop grocery shop featuring over 1,900 products from some of your favourite Market vendors: Saslove’s, Lapointe Fish, Byward Fruit Market, House of Cheese, and even Maverick’s donuts! You can put together a grocery order from all these vendors and choose to have it delivered or prepared for pickup, 6 days a week. Convenience meets local shopping. Learn more at the link above!

Florence Meats is a second-generation family-run boutique butcher shop in Oakville. They specialize in local dry aged beef, in-house smoked meats and poultry, and a wide range of premium products. They mainly source from southern Ontario farms. Our favourite Florence product? Their delicious South African-style beef biltong.
Ferme des Voltigeurs is a Quebec poultry farm and vendor. Their chickens are grain-fed with no animal by-products, and are raised freely in an area 20-30% larger than the industry standard. They’re raised in a natural environment, with adequate lighting and access to the outdoors. The difference? Delicious, certified organic chicken that you can feel good about.
Founded in 1982, this Quebec company started out raising pheasants for local restaurants. In that time, game meat was not yet popular; the people of Quebec still preferred their reliable beef, chicken, and pork cuts. Maison du Gibier was part of the movement that popularized game meats. While they started with small game, they eventually did move on to larger game such as bison and elk. Saslove’s carries items like quail eggs and confit duck legs from Maison du Gibier – a company that values tradition and quality.
Junior & the Kid is an Ottawa-based company that sells a line of absolutely delicious BBQ sauces. A passion for food, a love of family, and a great palette makes “the Kid” one of the best sauce-makers in the game. And they’re all made right here in Ottawa, which we love!
