Our Story

The owner Ernesto Monte comes from a long line of butchers - his grandparents owned a butcher shop in Italy and his parents owned Monte's Fine Foods on the Danforth for over 50 years.  This is his second venture after opening Meat on the Beach in the Beaches in 1996. 

Since opening in December of 2016 Royal York Meat Market has put the community first and has won the Etobicoke Guardians Diamond Award for Best Butcher and Gold Award for Best New Business.

We offer a vast selection of beef, lamb, veal, poultry and much more!  Our meats and vegetables are free of GMO's, dyes and preservatives.  Our meats are prepared daily and our produce section is constantly being added to.
