Life Is Gouda When You’re At Grande Cheese Market In North York


Do you brie-lieve in magic? Because it doesn’t get any cheddar than this!

The cheese, the deli meat selection, the cheese, the ready-made meals, the cheese, the pantry items…  oh – did we mention the cheese? If you have not yet visited Grande Cheese, then grab your coat and keys and get going… because that needs to be remedied ASAP.

It’s a warm & welcoming one-stop-shop for snacks, hors d’oeuvres, fresh ingredients, and treats! With multiple locations across the city, Grande Cheese is convenient, affordable, and TASTY! We guarantee he amount of offerings you’ll want to take home with you will require a second fridge.



But first, some history.

Marco Contardi was born in a small town of Anzano di Ouglia in Italy. During his younger years he tended sheep and cows. That’s where his love of cheese and cheesemaking started. Developing impeccable cheese-making skills in such cheeses as mozzarella, ricotta, provolone, bocconcini, and more.



In 1955, he moved to Toronto to start a better life for his family. He started his own company Grande Cheese. It didn’t take long for this new venture to become, not only a community favourite, but very successful financially as well! What started as a 5,000-foot facility soon grew to a 50,000 plant, with 4 retail stores and a cheese processing facility in Vaughan.



We cannot recommend Grande Cheese enough; it’s mozzare-hella good!



From their knowledgable staff to their fully stocked shelves of delicious offerings, you will leave not disappointed. For those who are little hesitant to leave the comfort of their homes right now, Grande Cheese does offer a delivery option for online orders. Deliveries happen from 2pm-5pm the day after the order is placed, unless the customer selects another delivery date.



In a city that offers everything, how wonderful would it be to live so close to a place that you can take full advantage of these delicious finds? To some, Grande Cheese is considered one of the best in the city, a perfect destination for all your sweet and savoury needs. How wonderful would it be to live within walking distance?
