Attention mall shoppers! The good news is now official. Farm Boy is opening its first fresh market in Ottawa’s downtown core in Late Fall 2017.

Located just one block east of Parliament Hill, CF Rideau Centre has always been right at the centre of the action, a destination within minutes of the Rideau Canal and the city’s busy arts and theatre district. Now Farm Boy at CF Rideau Centre is set to join this vibrant scene, with an urban food market brimming with garden-fresh produce and wholesome prepared foods.

Rideau Centre shoppers looking for quick and healthy lunch options need look no further than Farm Boy’s custom prep station, where they can design their own mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas, stir-fries, sushi and more. The fresh salad and hot bar are also filled with fresh ingredients to create a perfect pick-me-up before taking a quick breather in the in-store eating area.

Time-pressed commuters, meanwhile, can eat well on the run, popping in to pick up a healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the way to or from the office. And the neighbourhood’s many active condo dwellers might stop in for a healthy meal to enjoy at home or to stock up on nourishing options.

What’s in store for Rideau Centre shoppers at the city’s newest Farm Boy?

  • Abundant, fresh produce, with organic and local in season.

  • Hundreds of Ontario-made products, including organic, natural, and gluten-free items.

  • A 56-foot healthy and wholesome salad and hot bar, with fresh sushi and pizza made to order.

  • A new flat-top grill with a chef-inspired menu.

  • Deeply marbled premium Canada AAA beef, aged a minimum of 14 days.

  • Over 200 local farmstead, artisan, international and Canadian award-winning cheeses.

  • Hormone free, fresh organic beef, pork and chicken from Field Gate Organics, along with sustainable fresh seafood.

  • Fresh Oven Roasts cut to order from premium meats, slowly roasted without nitrates or preservatives.

  • Over 400 fresh Ontario dairy products, including Ontario organic milk delivered fresh.

  • 9 varieties of fresh soups, all made from scratch and served hot or ready to take home.
