Fresh Market is a family market which was established
in 1937 by founder Harry Daiter. In 1957, his son Ron
felt it was time to open another location in a new growing
community which was in the north end of Toronto at the
Third generation Joel and Stephen Daiter now own and operate
the present location at 3535 Bathurst Street, north of
Lawrence Avenue West. The Daiter brothers have grown up
in the family business and know most of their customers.
In many cases, they know their extended families as well.
Daiter’s is known for their Lana Brand Cheeses.
All the varieties are made in small batches without fillers
or preservatives, the way cheese was produced in Europe
for over a hundred years. Many customers shop regularly
at Daiter’s for the full array of cottage cheeses
and cream cheese mixes. Lana Brand 0.5% M.F. cottage cheese
is the largest selling cottage cheese in the store and
one of the best selling cottage cheeses in Ontario. Enjoy
it plain, mixed with smoked salmon, or fresh garden vegetables.
The Lana Brand 2.5% M.F. cottage cheese is still produced
and sold out of a cheese cloth for the freshest full flavor
product which put Daiter’s on the map back in 1937.
Their cream cheese is perfect for those who prefer a traditional
full fat cheese, or try their 9% M.F. cheese for low fat
Daiter’s carries a wide variety of products including
dairy items, cheeses, vegetarian, low fat, fresh prepared
salads, cooked foods and delicious freshly baked sweets.
All bakery items are baked in view daily such as Gryfe's
Bagels, baked onsite 7 days a week. Their bakery
department also bakes a large selection of sumptuous
sugar free pastries and pies. The on-premises full service
kitchen prepares all their delectable salads and specialty
cooked food items. Try Daiter’s own nova lox,
cured with all natural ingredients. Watch the Daiter
brothers hand slice it for you. It’s the best
in the city.
The Daiter’s look forward to greeting
you themselves when you visit them in their family run
