At Vince’s Market we try to give you a wide variety of baked goods options to satisfy a variety of tastes. Let us highlight some new and exciting products and some classic staples in this, our seasonal bakery update.
This week we celebrated a very special milestone for Vince’s Market – March 19th marked the 5th anniversary of the opening of Vince’s Market Uxbridge. We would like to acknowledge and thank the many individuals that have made our new location so successful in its first five years – from the incredible team of staff to our loyal and valued customers.

It sure has been one long, frigid winter – the coldest I can remember in many years and has had somewhat of an impact on Ontario Greenhouse Growers. The lack of sunlight and consistent cold spells has made it a challenge to get the greenhouses producing, but we are now seeing the fruits of their labour. Here is a summary of the seasonal produce available right now In our Vince’s Market stores.
We now have Ontario English Cucumbers (baby English and full English) and Ontario Rhubarb. In the next week we expect to see the tomatoe varieties begin (Cluster & Hot House) followed by all bell pepper varieties (red, yellow, orange and green). Continue reading →
Here at Vince’s Market, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the highest level of quality and freshness, consistently… every day. To that end, we decided to create our own line of grocery items called Vince’s Own. We wanted the line to match the values that we instil in our business every day so we sourced a local producer who specializes in creating all-natural, preservative free, and artisan products.
Vince’s Market is very proud to announce we have been awarded The Era Banner Reader’s Choice Awards as follows: • 1st place – Fresh Fruit & Vegetables (18th year running!) • 2nd place- Specialty Grocery Story • 3rd place – Health Food Store • 3rd place – Organic Store
The big Super Bowl game is this Sunday and Vince’s Market has everything you need to make hosting quick and painless. Whether you are a fan or not, the Super Bowl has a tendency to bring the whole family together to participate in the festivities.
It seems like after the holidays it is most people’s resolution to eat better, start exercising and generally get into better overall physical health however, it can be tough if you set unreasonable goals for yourself. I tend to see a lot of people start out with crash diets, 7 days a week in the gym and after a few weeks of constant cravings and feeling so sore from all the new physical activity, most just give up.
I always love the beginning of a New Year; to me it is sort of like a rebirth of body, mind and spirit like a New Year, new you! It allows us the opportunity to reflect on what the previous year taught us and to be our best selves possible in the year to come. Body, mind and spirit are all interdependent.
Happy New Year from all of us here at Vince’s Market! We hope the holiday season was safe and memorable for you and your families. The frigid weather made for some treacherous conditions, but also some of the most beautiful landscapes. We hope your traditions were not affected by any loss of power. Many people actually commented it was the best Christmas in years, as the lack of power led to better quality family time without distractions.
As the family gatherings and overeating come to a close, many of us turn our focus to healthy living in 2014. With the best of intentions, we begin making more health conscious food decisions. This often means less eating out, eating more fruits and veggies and cutting down on high sugar items.
