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.

    Excellent products and an easy to use online service. I just purchase what I want online and go pick it up on an assigned day. I was recommended to the Healthy Butcher by a friend and ever since then, it has been a staple in my regular grocery buying rotation. I myself have already recommended it to others. One a side note: Definitely check out their roasted walnut oil. It's my newest favourite thing!

    As a customer, I know that there are many choices, the ultimate is where my money is spent. The Healthy Butcher has everything you need in a quality grocery store: integrity, quality, ethics & inspiration. Yes, the name is Butcher, and none finer in my opinion, but there is far more that they offer. Not just what to cook, but how. What to cook with, and how to share the passion of food , both humble and sublime.
