A look inside Farm Boy’s new 20,000-square-foot Harbourfront store

More Supermarket Sweeps

In its continued takeover of Toronto, Farm Boy opened its sixth location in the city, inside the Queens Quay Terminal, earlier this month. The space, previously a Sobey’s Urban Fresh, stocks everything the Ottawa-born brand is known for: locally sourced produce, Canadian-raised meats and hundreds of private-label products. Given its proximity to the Harbourfront Centre and various other attractions, this particular store dedicates a good portion of shelf real estate to snacks and ready-to-eat meals, perfect for picnicking tourists.
