Meat and Produce Shops - Durham Region

Hey everyone. I grew up in St. Catharines and that region is blessed for food markets. Beyond all of the local fruit and vegetable stands throughout the summer, there were some staple grocery stores with amazing quality and prices.

For produce, Lococo's in Niagara Falls (now also in Hamilton) is a great store with such a good and fresh produce selection. For meats, Big Red Market in Thorold would have amazing deals and great prices. For the longest time, they had beef tenderloin on for $9.99 a lb (but have since raised it to $16.99. Still a good deal). It's my understanding that these are food distribution companies that offer retail store fronts.

I've since moved Pickering and I am struggling to find similar stores here. It seems like the only options available are the big chain grocers and Costco. Does anyone know of any places that are similar to Lococo's or Big Red Market that are in the Durham Region?

I’ve bought plenty from halendas. Don’t know they are as far west as Pickering though.
