A commitment to artisan butchery three generations strong

The Butcher Shoppe is a family owned and operated wholesale meat distributor that’s passionate about artisan butchery. We started some three generations ago in the meatpacking district of New York before opening the doors to The Butcher Shoppe in Toronto’s Kensington Market, to where we are today. We focus on quality, staying true to the traditional methods of butchery and a personal approach.  

Done by hand or not at all

Nothing can replace the craft and precision of a seasoned professional, which is why our skilled team of butchers cuts every order by hand with attention and care, the old-school way. Whatever your exact specifications might be, we can make it happen. There’s a reason we’re known for custom cuts and special requests — try us!  

It all comes down to the people

Throughout the years, our family has gained experience in all areas of the meat business, whether that’s been in slaughter and processing plants, retail stores or even restaurants. But what we’ve learned along the way is that the people are the most important part, and our more than 200 employees truly care about our clients and suppliers. We work hard to accommodate your needs to the highest of standards.
