Where our food comes from is what drives us here at
Real Food Market & Kitchen.

From our kitchen! Prepared Meals

Ingredients really matter to us, that's why we source our food direct from local organic farms and producers, independent businesses, and cooperatives whenever possible.

We do this to enhance the flavour, increase the nutrient value and most importantly to support a sustainable food system in which people, animals, land and the community are nurtured and respected.

Lia makes our meals from scratch (even our stocks) which means there are no additives, preservatives, fillers or food dyes and all of our meals are low sodium.

Our meals are made in small batches so that we can offer quality foods in a variety of options including gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free.

HOPE: Small Flock's Delight eggs come from a cooperative of Amish farmers located in Aylmer, Ontario. They raise hens in small flocks (as the name suggests) of 100 to 500 birds in tents on pasture. In summer, movable shelters are always kept on fresh grass and in winter dried legumes provide lots of loose litter for hens to play and scratch in. These happy hens eat grass or organic GMO-free grain and veggie scraps, with full access to nest boxes or perches.
