Farmer's Pick has been Ottawa's trusted home for high-quality, delicious food for more than 20 years. We are a family owned and managed, traditional Italian grocery store that offers fresh, affordable food. Our Owner, Alfonso Curcio, and their friendly staff are proud to provide customers with a wide assortment of the best local and imported foods available. Come by our store and browse our extensive selection of fresh produce, including your favourite fruits and vegetables from local and international farmers. While you're here, be sure to shop Ottawa's largest selection of European cheese and choose from some of the finest cheeses available.

Our European Deli offers a wide variety of cheese, meat, and fruit platters and our famous made-to-order sandwiches that are prepared on bread that is baked right here at the Farmer's Pick in-store Italian bakery. Don't forget to check out our butchery, which offers an impressive selection of premium beef, pork, chicken, and other meats that are prepared in-store by our Master Butcher.

The Farmer’s Pick Difference

The outside of the Farmer's Pick store

Fresh, Affordable Produce

Here at Farmer's Pick, you're only going to find the freshest fruits and vegetables available. Shop our market-style produce section and find your favourite fruits and vegetables. You'll be able to taste the difference freshness makes when you first take a bite out of soft fruit, melons, grapes, or any of our fruits and veggies. Fresh food lasts longer, is healthier and, above all, tastes better.

Delectable Deli and European Cheeses

We take cheese and deli meats seriously, and that's why we have our own in-store deli: so we can ensure our customers only get the best cheeses and deli meats possible. Our 36 ft. cheese display offers a range of cheeses from around the world, including Ottawa's largest selection of European cheese. We also offer a range of delectable, high-quality deli meats that are perfect for a quick, wholesome lunch. Come by and grab a freshly made sandwich and find out what good food tastes like.

In-Store Master Butcher

Simply put, we offer the best meat products available in Ottawa. Butchery truly is an art, and our master butcher is one of the best in the business. We age our meats for a full 21 days, (compared to 14 days for some competitors) which locks in the flavour and helps ensure the meat is tender, juicy, and delicious. Take home an Angus AAA steak supplied by local farmers, or try some all-natural Italian sausages made in-store using a trusted family recipe-they are probably the best in the city.

From Scratch European Bakery

Our Italian bakery makes everything from scratch and only uses all natural ingredients because we only deliver the best products possible to our customers. While many of our competitors have their pre-made baked goods delivered on a truck, we offer freshly baked bread, buns, treats, and other goodies that you can only find in a real Italian bakery.
