Our Story

Christopher and Sarah Terpstra started Alimentari in 2015, making fresh pasta and seasonal sauces for sale at Toronto farmers' markets, all while expecting their first child. Just one sleepless year-and-a-half later, they found the perfect location for opening the 'alimentari' they had dreamt of since meeting in Tuscany years earlier. Nearly 5 years later, Alimentari has become a staple of the Roncesvalles neighbourhood.

Nowadays, Christopher can be found butchering whole animals at their newly opened Russell's Butcher & Deli, just blocks north of Alimentari, and - between the two shops - Sarah can be seen, chasing after their two sons, Hugo and Willem.

Visit Alimentari and be sure to find a wide selection of local and imported Italian pantry goods, alongside the seasonal prepared foods and fresh pasta. Then, head up to Russell's and discover more!
