A visit to Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market, a popular haunt for elite chefs and amateur foodies that was named No. 1 on the list of the world’s top 10 markets by National Geographic, typically requires leaving your house. However, online grocer Fooddel launched the gourmet market into cyberspace when it started up two years ago; the site offers free deliveries throughout Toronto, guaranteed fresh by multitemperature refrigeration and a 100 per cent satisfaction guarantee. The site unites more than 28 marketplace merchants in its easily navigable store, such as Di Liso’s Fine Meats, Carousel Bakery, Harbourfront Organics, and Seafront Fish Market. After composing orders of organic produce, locally made artisanal cheeses, and charcuterie meats, customers can check out at one central register rather than by giving each merchant a scrap of a $20 bill.
