What to look forward to in May: Mother’s Day, burger deals, the long weekend and fresh Ontario produce

April showers really did lead to May flowers, it seems! After some wet, chilly days here in Toronto, we’re being rewarded with beautiful blue skies, warmer temperatures and glorious sunshine. We hope you’re enjoying this gorgeous weather as much as we are and making good use of your backyard grill.

May is a busy time of year for a lot of families, and also for the Olliffe team. There’s a lot going on at the moment, so we’ve put together a few highlights we wanted to share with our customers. If you have any questions or feedback, please reach out to us at your convenience. We’d be glad to hear from you or see you in person at our Yonge Street butcher shop.

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th

Mother’s Day weekend is coming up fast! Whether you’re preparing brunch, lunch, dinner or a picnic in the park, Olliffe has everything you need to create a delicious meal for Mom. Our Fine Dining Collection is the perfect source for inspiration—if you’d like personalized recommendations from our expert butchers, just ask. We also have farm-fresh eggs, delicious bacon and peameal bacon, Bayfield Provisions granola and more.

Fresh local asparagus is coming!

This is one of the best times of the year to enjoy fresh Ontario produce, and asparagus is a perennial favourite among Olliffe customers. Whether you grill it, make an asparagus tart with cheese, add it to quiches or omelettes, or sauté it in garlic butter, asparagus is a seasonal delight that cannot be missed. We love asparagus wrapped in bacon or served beside a juicy Ontario beef steak! Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates on the availability of this product, or ask in store. Our butchers are always glad to speak with you.

Get ready for the first long weekend of the season

The Victoria Day long weekend is coming, and our fingers are crossed for more of this beautiful weather. We recommend taking advantage of BurgerFest to start stocking up your freezer now so you’re ready for the cottage, a backyard BBQ or your annual camping trip. You can also grab some kebabs, sausages, pork ribs, steaks, chicken breasts and more.

Thanks as always for choosing to shop local and support our butcher shop. We’re proud to offer delicious, high quality, regenerative food and grateful for your business!
