FoodFare – 2285 Portage
Owned and Operated
We have been in the
heart of many
We offer a wide selection of products which includes a large organic and fair trade offering, fresh produce, and a meat counter that is a cut above the rest. We are known for our full service, always well stocked meat department.
FOODFARE was originally a chain of independent stores, with the idea of servicing the community around it and providing exceptional service and operates based on the communities needs.
Wajih “Moe” Zeid bought a Payfair store in 1977. After 10 years in business, he was approached by the Foodfare group to convert his store into a Foodfare. That location is still in operation at 247 Lilac Street. Over the years, other owners began retiring, and when a opportunity presented itself, Moe bought other Foodfare’s.
Today, the Zeid family operates 5 different locations, and FOODFARE is solely owned by the Zeid Family. You will see many members of the family on the store floor, providing that “old school service” that has disappeared over the years. Moe Zeid is still involved with the family business, along with his sons and daugthers, and numerous grand children.
