Opening Soon at 801 Mohawk Road West, Hamilton, Ontario
If you haven’t already heard the news (and it’s great news!), Farm Boy grocery store is opening soon in Hamilton – March 22nd at 8am, to be exact!
The Hamilton location will be on the West Mountain, at 801 Mohawk Road West (where the No Frills previously was).
Though this is their 26th store opening, Farm Boy is more like a small-town grocer. They have a mantra to support local, sourcing all Ontario products where they can, and bringing in hyper-local products where they open stores. (Carrying Hamilton-made products in Hamilton, Brantford-made in Brantford etc etc.)
You may have already visited one of their other nearby locations, and if you have…you’ll know what I’m talking about with the Farm Boy difference. If not, you’re in for a treat!
Rather than sourcing the nation-wide brands that you find at big-box grocers, the independent Farm Boy carries many different, interesting products that you can’t find elsewhere (like Fermented Garlic Flowers!) and offers a large variety of products under their own brand.
Popular Farm Boy-labelled products include their salad dressings – which have been featured in Chatelaine – their pasta sauces, pickled items, crackers, chocolate and loads more. Find out more about the Farm Boy products here.
On top of all their delicious grocery items, they also feature an extensive prepared foods section, complete with a huge salad bar, a wood-fire pizza bar, a sushi bar with poke bowls available, and entrees like butter chicken, meatballs, lasagnas. The options are many!
They also bake many of their items in house like breads, muffins and sweets – including a delicious Thyme Lemon Loaf that I think might be my new favourite tea-time treat.
Personally, I am also really excited for their meat and seafood section , which has lots of high-quality inexpensive options, as well as pre-seasoned items like flattened chimichurri or lemon pepper chicken, and meat kabobs.

Thank you, Farm Boy, for inviting me out to tour your Etobicoke location!
