In a world saturated with cheap potato chips and stale snacks, Spudniks stands apart. Rather than selling crinkly bags of chips and popcorn designed to last for months—thanks to additives and preservatives—they make each without unnecessary chemicals and serve them up to customers fresh and warm. The flavours are better, too—snacks are only seasoned once they're sold, and the shop's varied seasonings come with gluten-free options in flavours such as bleu cheese and chicken wings, mexi-jalapeno, and spicy thai-chili. The finger food selection ranges far and wide, from potato chips and kettle corn to spoutine and spachos, Spudniks' takes on the traditional comfort foods.

The products are also available in sealed packages for retail sale and portable consumption, with each bag actually full of snacks—not the disappointing air pocket or novelty rubber snake that fills other bags. For off-site enjoyment, Spudniks caters events with their warm chips and popcorn.

Inspired by the boutique markets of New York and France, Fresh & Wild's King and Spadina and Bloor West locations buzz with activity as customers browse produce, meat, and artisan goods sourced both locally and from across the globe. Within the King and Spadina store, a high-powered media system plays rock and blues as shoppers lasso tapenades and fresh tomatoes into carts. A modern café echoes Italy as it brews fair-trade coffees, leans slightly askew, and dishes out flaky pastries from local bakeries. The Bloor West location celebrates the bounty of nature by displaying vibrant green plants within indoor and outdoor cases.

Each morning at 4 a.m., the grocery's buyer arrives at a food terminal to acquire fresh items and potatoes, which he then uses to fuel his car back home. Additionally, Fresh & Wild employs a catering team that stack gourmet sandwiches and shake up organic salads until they plead for mercy.

Named one of the best cheese shops in the city by blogTO, Cheese Emporium curates cheeses from at least a dozen different countries, celebrating the unique cheese-making character and tradition found in each locale. French and Italian cheeses dominate the dairy cases in the shop, whose selection Toronto Life describes as “defiantly European.” Pungent and creamy Delice de Bourgogne fills a cheese plate alongside one of three Roqueforts, and Italian offerings such as Sardinian goat cheese and buffalo mozzarella mingle with swiss gruyere. More local cheeses stroll over from other provinces and the USA, including a 12-year Quebec white cheddar and a smoky Oregon blue. Toronto Life also describes an “extensive olive bar” from which customers can harvest a wide variety of googly eyes for the sandwiches at their next business lunch.
