A Bloor & Better Way To Take Out


As part of the President’s Choice family, bloorstreet market on the concourse level sells most of what you’d expect to find at a regular Loblaws. But given the number of people who work in the area, along with the influx of young professionals moving into the neighbourhood, it was important that they go above and beyond at the prepared foods counter. They’ve gone much further than that, both in quality and breadth.

 

Picnic time
Earlier, we looked at a few places in the area to set up shop with a blanket and a bite. As for what to pack, sandwiches at the bloorstreet market don’t disappoint. Meat and veggie options are made daily, as are the fresh salads behind the counter. This creamy broccoli creation pairs fantastically with a bloorstreet curry chicken sandwich.

Last-minute hosting
bloorstreet market’s takeout counter has been a lifesaver for many of the residents in 44 Charles Street, the apartments above Manulife Centre, with a full selection of entrées like BBQ ribs, sweet & sour chicken and others. Gorgeous sides like roasted potatoes and asparagus are always available as well, and the dessert counter is exactly what you’d expect from a President’s Choice experience  we’re big fans of the butter tarts.

The little details
Any table looks better with fresh flowers on it, and you can pick up a bouquet to match your meal at bloorstreet market. A full arrangement will look great on a dining room table while a single flower in a cup adds all kinds of charm to a picnic table.

And as for drinks, the LCBO is four doors down from bloorstreet market, and houses one of the best vintages sections in the city.
