There is a new one opening up at Leslie and Lakeshore in the same plaza as Canadian Tire and Shoppers, with Loblaws and FreshCo each across the street.

The ones I had were great. I suspect that it has to do with the in store bakery and or even the batch.

Used to live very close to the first Ottawa Farm Boy and have been shopping there since they began operations. Every time I go there I find it less and less appealing. Half the store now is devoted to value added (ie expensive) fresh prepared foods. Prices in general are high. Too bad since I used to love shopping there. Now I hardly ever go there.

In Ottawa I find Mid East Foods at Belfast and St. Laurent the best place to shop these days.

A farm boy just recently open in Oakville and going to check it out

I never been there before and heard they have their own exclusive brand products

So what are the best farm boy brand products to get?

This time of year, definitely their egg nog in the glass bottles. Note that there is a deposit on those bottles (or there was last year)...
Friendly reminder: South Street is the second coming of Licks, and Works Burger is a bad ripoff of Red Robin put out by those purveyors of garbage, MTY Shit Restaurants Group.

Just recently started going and I love most of their products. Some favorites so far...

Lemon and Garlic Dressing
Steakhouse Garlic Sauce
Sausages (Jalapeno and Andouille I liked most)

I like the Farm Boy brand maple leaf cookies in a box. They have a huge amount of "icing" in the middle compared to Dare or Christie's usual ones and it's soft enough it squishes out when you bite off a piece.

it works in middle of no where of places with nothing else nice around.

This is the first I have heard of Farm Boy.

Is this just another corporation wrapping themselves in the farm-to-plate flag?

Originally Farm Boy was a small grocery store chain from eastern Ontario. There aren't a lot of independents in that part of the province. If you are from the west GTA, they are similar to Longos and Michaelangelos. Unfortunately because they were successful they are now being taken over by Sobeys.

Found the loser who works for one of their competitors
