The Bulk Cheese Warehouse is a well-loved staple on Broadway Avenue, and has an extensive selection of cheeses, meats and charcuterie fixings (like pickles, crackers, jellies and dips), along with their in-house butcher shop. Their deli meats are prepared and smoked in-house, and my personal favourites include their prosciutto, smoked salmon and smoked duck breast. The Bulk Cheese Warehouse also sells pre-made charcuterie boards year-round — just call ahead to order.

Located in Sutherland, Summit Meats & Sausage sells a number of charcuterie items, with many of them made in-house, like their jerky, beer sticks and sausage. If you’re looking for something different to spice up your charcuterie board, be sure to check out Summit — they have a dill pickle beer sausage, Dr. Pepper jalapeno jerky and many more unique items. Summit also sells charcuterie fixings like pickles and sauces, and they have charcuterie platters too, which are made to order.
