Leslieville Cheese Market, with two locations in Toronto, is opening a third store in Flesherton, right on the main route to Georgian Bay cottage country.

“There is a bit of a food movement happening slowly in and around Flesherton,” says co-owner Michael Simpson. “It’s not an organized thing. People from Toronto who vacation in the area have brought with them a demand for excellence.”

Leslieville Cheese Market North will open June 1 at 10 Sydenham Street in Flesherton, right beside The Bakery, a popular stop on Highway 10.

“The Bakery in Flesherton is known far and wide,” says Michael. “We previously have had a great relationship with them. That makes us all the more happy that our market will be situated right beside them and their fantastic aromas.”

Leslieville Cheese Market North will be managed by co-owner Gary Ikona.

Leslieville Cheese Market East at 891 Queen Street East at Logan opened on June 16, 2006. Leslieville Cheese Market West at 541 Queen Street West at Augusta opened May 15, 2009.

In addition a huge selection of Canadian and imported cheeses, Leslieville carries chacuterie and other fine foods, and hosts the popular Night School for Cheese Fans with Julia Rogers and Beer School with Cheese Fans with Sam Corbeil.
