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!
