Farm Boy Whitby is finally opening on Thursday, August 27th, 2015 and you are invited to join the festivities!
The brand new 28,000 square foot location is having two opening celebrations! The first is on Thursday, August 27th at 7:45am for the official ribbon cutting ceremony. They will have Ontario vendors on hand with tasty samples, and the first 50 customers lined up will receive a $10 Farm Boy Gift Card.
The official grand opening celebration is on Saturday, August 29th, from 10am to 2pm and you can join them for tasty samples, in store specials, Lulu the cow will be there, and also face painting for the kids. New Country KX96 will be onsite 10 am to 1 pm as well!
The new store is the 18th Farm Boy location and the third of four stores planned for opening in 2015 – with the Kitchener store to open later this year. The Whitby location is the company’s first fresh market store in the Greater Toronto Area.
What exactly is Farm Boy? It’s a grocery store featuring farm-fresh produce, organic, natural and locally sourced foods. There’s also a full selection of premium meats, artisan cheese, sustainable seafood and their own store brands. There are also fresh prepared meals made from scratch in the Farm Boy Kitchen which makes me very excited! I love being able to pick up fresh meals when I just don’t have time to cook for my family. There will also be an in-store eating area with free Wi-Fi.
The store will support local businesses in the area as well by carrying products from Empire Cheese and Butter Co-op, Buster Rhinos Southern BBQ Sauce, Geissberger Farmhouse Cider and Black River Juice Company.
Farm Boy also offers a 50 foot wholesome and healthy fresh salad and hot bar, with fresh sushi and pizza made to order. It’s perfect for picking something up to take home, or to eat in-store! There are also 15 varieties of fresh soups, all made from scratch and served hot or ready to take home.
