The Healthy Butcher

The Healthy Butcher has been one of Toronto’s preeminent butcher shops since 2005, when ex-vegetarians Mario Fiorucci and Tara Longo left their Bay Street careers to follow their passion – good food. “Our goal was simple – to create an establishment that we would be happy to buy meat from because of transparency, a connection with the farms, and a common goal the farmers to raise animals the way nature intended.” The result is healthy meat without compromise. The Healthy Butcher stands apart from the vast majority of butcher shops because it provides the perfect intersection between health and taste. Their focus is on providing only the best quality 100% Grassfed and Certified Organic meat. Today, The Healthy Butcher works directly with over 70 farms, and has strong relationships that allow them to help share information between farmers in regards to what they eat, pasture rotation, and every last detail of the equation. The store offers a full selection of hand-crafted sausages, burgers, artisanal charcuterie, and Ocean Wise approved fresh fish.

    I've enjoyed the delivery service and like the fact that I don't have to face the evils of GTA traffic to get good quality meat! The meat quality is as ever exceptional and no other butcher in Toronto can compare.

    Healthy Butcher on Queen East is pretty much the only place I'll go to buy meat and dairy. Love it.

    While the food, and the cuts of meat in particular, are delicious, it is the conversations that I have with members of staff that are one of the biggest factors that made me a Healthy Butcher devotee. Their knowledge is on a whole other level, and helps me make informed purchasing decisions. Thank you!

    I’ve been a customer for many years. Have always been happy with the meat I’ve purchased and trust that is raised humanely which is extremely important to me. Great selection and helpful staff and have recently started enjoying the convenience of delivery which is quick, easy and free with minimum order. I’ve heard others complain about prices but you get what you pay for!
