Reviewed 27 October 2016 via mobile

We have enjoyed the wonderful service from the cashiers, butchers, and clerks, over the past year. The produce is very fresh and a lot of it is local. We enjoy the various meat choices in the butcher dept. and the seafood dept. Their bakery has a wonderful selection of bread and other treats. You can make a meal from their hot table from breakfast to dinner selections. They also offer combos in their prepared food dept, next to the deli. Their cheese selection is great too. Don't forget to get a salad card, after your 10th purchase you get a free one. They also offer fresh pizza, sandwiches, soups and sushi, to go. If you wish they have a cafe, where you can enjoy your prepared food choices. Overall, a pleasant shopping experience will welcome you at Farm Boy!

FarmBoy is a grocery store, but a slightly different one. Great produce most of the time, Great grocery products, but selection is limited, due to the space constraints. However, fresh things are always good and selection is great.
Great meats and fish selection by the looks of it, veggies are great, mostly local if available.
Hot food buffet can be hit and miss, depending on how busy the place is, and how diligent are the staff about keeping it stocked and organized. Soups are good, premade salads as well, pizza, sushi and sandwiches deserve a mention as well.
The best thing about FarmBoy is that it brought up the level of competition for grocery dollars in Whitby and other stores had to step up their game slightly.
The worst part about FarmBoy? Buying prosciutto at the deli counter. Tried five times, not once was it cut properly, even after asking to have it cut thin. Even had a staff member argue with my wife that prosciutto should not be cut thin but thick.

Although we don't live close by we will definately stop here anytime we are around. Huge selection of quality products. Love that they make a lot of their own food items and that most are canadian!

I was there last week and was pleasantly surprised. Pleasant surrounding, everything looks so fresh and we certainly enjoyed the groceries we purchased. Good salads, breads and we were so happy to get Ontario strawberries as most stores do not carry them only the bland US ones. We will go back for our produce, the prices weren't too bad.
