Farm Boy

Our Roots are in Fresh Produce

It all started back in December of 1981, when Jean-Louis and Colette Bellemare opened their first Farm Boy fresh market store on Cumberland Street in Cornwall, Ontario. The small 300 sq. ft. store sold only fresh produce. Word quickly spread that Farm Boy was the place to go for friendly service and the best quality fresh produce – produce that stayed fresher longer when you brought it home.
