Victoria Day Weekend is here Vince’s Market is looking forward to seeing you! Time to get outside and freshen up the garden or open up the cottage or just enjoy a long weekend of much deserved rest and relaxation with family, friends and some great food.
For many decades, Vince’s Sharon often served as the hub for those Newmarket and East Gwillimbury residents to stock up on their way to the cottage and a way to replenish your homes when you return on the Holiday Monday. We are proud that our Newmarket and Uxbridge locations continue that tradition. Holiday shopping at Vince’s is a tradition unto itself and one where the entire Vince’s family comes in to work and support the busy days. We love the energy and excitement that comes with any holiday weekend.
This Victoria Day, whether you are staying in, camping or heading to the cottage, we have you covered with on-site prepared salads, fruit trays, vegetable platters and ready to go meals. Olimpia and her team are hard at coming up with some new ideas for you to try. If you are like us, and can’t go anywhere without a great loaf of bread, try Ace’s Bake Your Own line of baguettes, garlic bread or butter croissants. These items are frozen and require a short period of baking off to bring the smell of the fresh bakery to wherever you are (campsite or your own kitchen). This is an excellent way to avoid the worry of packing fresh bread.
The Vince’s family wishes you a very safe and happy Victoria Day long weekend filled with great memories of family, friends and great food! Visit our Facebook page and let us know what you plan on doing this weekend and what sort of great food traditions you have for the long weekend.

While I am sure everyone knows that Carmen goes to the market to get fresh produce, we actually procure meat in the same way. I am Brian Johns, a partner at Vince’s Market. I look after the meat departments. Over the years, I have built relationships with many different local Ontario meat packers and distributors. Much like produce, it is extremely important to have strong relationships, to ensure you are getting the best quality product at the best possible price.

Even though the weather is cold, there are lots of reasons to love February. Ontarians are excited to get an extra long weekend for Family Day, to relax or have a fun day with the kids. The most obvious reason to love February is because of Valentine’s Day, the day devoted to love and sweethearts.
