Started in 1976, Foodsmiths now occupies over 6,500 sq. ft. of retail space, offering locally sourced food as well as Canadian and International brands. Our focus is as Local, Canadian and Ethical as possible, helping people support their healthy lifestyles. Here is the perfect summing up of our company by one of our customers:
"Awesome health food store like nowhere else! Fresh produce, as locally sourced as possible, bakery, prepared foods, coffee beans or by the cup, dairy section, Birkenstocks, gluten-free aisle, cheese island, bulk foods, and then a huge section for supplements. And more and more that you will find. Capable professional staff and a loyalty programme to encourage you to return. Love it!"
We love you too!
