This includes Cheese, Charcuture, and Canned Items.
OTTAWA’S ONLY CHEESE COOLER FOCUSED ON LOCAL!
And yes, we mean it! Our cheese cooler stocks, on rotation, over 100 cheeses being crafted by small scale, artisanal or farmstead cheesemakers from Ontario and Quebec.
Some cheeses you will always find in our cooler, such as the award winning Lankaaster from Glengarry Fine Cheeses, and the Bleu d’Elizabeth from Fromagerie du Presbytere.
Others are more rare, such as Le Clandestin from Fromagerie Le Detour, or Madawaska from Back Forty Cheeses.
Whatever the occasion, we have a cheese in stock that will help you with your dinner or event. If you’re looking for a European cheese, we can usually recommend a Canadian cheese that will substitute quite nicely.
Charcuterie is one of our main passions at The Piggy Market. Charcuterie is defined as the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, including sausages, bacon, ham, pates, terrines, rillettes, confits, salumi, and more.
Made In House: Once a week, we create a pate, terrine, or rillette focusing on our own love of the craft.
Some other in house items are:
- Duck Confit
- Roast Beef
- Roast Turkey
In addition to our own creations, we work with some of the best producers in the province for a selection unparalleled in most grocery stores.
