Vince’s Market is an independent grocer located in Sharon, Newmarket, Uxbridge and Tottenham, Ontario.
Our history runs deep in the areas we serve, although the first Vince’s was established in Toronto in 1929. The Vince brothers moved their store north to Sharon in 1956, as an open-air fruit market, which was purchased by Carmen Trimarchi in 1986.
Carmen, along with partners Brian Johns and Giancarlo Trimarchi, have since grown the brand, with four main stores renowned for their fresh produce, along with carrying a full salad bar, catering options (including our famous platters), and an extensive lineup of prepared foods, bulk items, grocery and dairy products.
And we’ve recently launched a fifth location. Our new “micro store” in Market & Co. at Upper Canada Mall is one of 18 best-in-class artisan merchants, providing a curated selection of fresh items and groceries that represents the best of who we are.
Vince’s Market is an award-winning chain. In 2018, we were named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the second year in a row. “We are so incredibly proud of our Management and Supervisory Teams as well as every Team Member at Vince’s. Our commitment to Quality, Fresh, and Convenience is delivered at every level,” said Giancarlo Trimarchi.
We are also recognized as one of the top Independent Grocers in Canada by the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG). In 2017, we won the GS1 Canada Innovator’s Award (supported by the CFIG), and in 2014, our Newmarket location was awarded the #1 Small Surface Independent Grocer in South/Central Ontario – and placed 2nd in the category, nationally.
Giancarlo also now sits on executive committee of the CFIG board of directors.
Closer to home, we are the founding and lead sponsor for the annual East Gwillimbury Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Award, and have been honoured by the local chambers of commerce in the towns where we reside and serve. A recent example is the Large Business of the Year award from the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce in 2013.
Community newspapers also recognize our stores through their annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Metroland Media’s Uxbridge Time’s-Journal recently gave us top honours for Best Grocery Store, Best Fresh Produce, and Best Prepared Foods. The Newmarket Era awarded us #1 Grocery Store yet again, and for the 22nd consecutive year, we took first place in the Best Fresh Fruit and Vegetables category.
We are a Canadian Independent Grocer who strives to excel in providing fresh, high-quality products at great value. Our slogan, “…Because food is one of life’s greatest pleasures” speaks to our consumers about price, quality, and the simple enjoyment food plays in our everyday lives.

The reason Vince’s can provide customers with such an exceptional ‘fresh food’ experience is the way we select and source our products. Carmen Trimarchi, President and Partner of Vince’s Market, attends the Ontario Food Terminal five days a week, starting his day at 5:00 am to look, feel and taste the produce he’s buying. Carmen has been purchasing at the Food Terminal for more than 40 years, and his experience, friendships and connections ensure we receive the very best of what is available.
Our success has taken hard work, dedication and commitment. Carmen continues to work side-by-side with his team to ensure that our message of ‘quality first‘ is always top of mind. There are no shortcuts in the produce business, and we believe our extra efforts make the difference, year after year.
