The Joseph Family would like to welcome you to our website and to our Markets located in the heart of the Rose City of Windsor, Ontario. We are a family owned and operated business since 1994.
We are proud to offer our customers Good Quality Produce at Discount Prices.
It is with great pride that our Fruits and Vegetables are hand selected daily so our customers always have a fresh product. Our produce is a sight to behold.
It's the first thing you see when you come into one of our stores: a visual feast of colour, variety and sparkling freshness piled high for your pleasure and convenience.
These days, you are probably more health conscious than ever before. With goals of eating right and staying fit, you need look no further for the best, fresh produce. We have gone to great lengths to carry only the finest fruits and vegetables and to deliver them to you in the same excellent condition as when they were picked.
We are committed to continue to put forth good quality produce and good prices to our friends and neighbours of this wonderful city. We are here to offer convenience with three beautiful locations Windsor’s West, East and South-side where Fresh is what we do best!
Neighbourhood butchers seem all but extinct, but a small Windsor store on Windsor's west and east side is a booming success. Marc Romualdi and his wife Christine run M.R. Meat Market Ltd., 2451 Tecumseh Rd. W. and 6645 Tecumseh Rd. E.
Romualdi began his career as a meat cutter in his dad's Leamington IGA store years ago. "We do things here no one else does," says Marc Romualdi, 33, pointing to his popular sausages made on premises, his stuffed mushrooms with sausage and other store-made specialty items.
The store sells more than one ton a week of his sausage.
The couple survives in a brutally fierce food market in Windsor, he says, because of quality, service and price. Windsor consumers are savvy shoppers who know value.
"We're the largest meat market in Windsor by volume," Romualdi boasts. "We're all about volume."
He uses space in the adjacent produce retailer's coolers for additional storage.
He buys almost all his meats from Canadian sources. He looks for premium grades, lean cuts and products without salt and water added.
Windsorites love food, and that's what attracted him to return to the area, enter the retail food market about a year ago and open the store.
Everyone told him he was crazy, he says, but he persisted.
"There's nothing like this city. Windsor is a very special food market for me."

Good For You Yogurt Bowl
This quick little recipe is packed with so much nutrition and is really easy to make once you have some basic supplies and a little organization. We all have heard the benefits of Chia Seeds, ground Flaxseed, Cinnamon and Plain Yogurt.The question is:
How can we get all of those good things into our Regular Diet, easily and quickly?
I thought to myself these dry ingredients need to be in an area all together where its easy to grab them and go. I created one shelf in my kitchen for my Good For You Stuff. I purchased some MASON JARS for the Chia Seeds, Flaxseeds, Nuts (Your choice),and Dried Fruits. When I purchase these items I fill up my mason jars keeping the shelf clean and organized. I keep my honey, cinnamon, and vanilla extract on the same shelf.
Now all you need is the right yogurt! I enjoy the taste and texture of the Plain Balkan Style Yogurt. No need to be afraid of plain yogurt because you can sweeten it with Honey and cinnamom and sometimes even a dash of vanilla.
My morning ritual consists of grabbing a bowl, filling it with the Balkan Yogurt, and then opening my special cupboard to grab my fixings! I sprinkle approx. 1 tbsp. of each item and at the end I add honey. I sometimes even add FRESH FRUIT instead of the dried fruit! You can play around with the optional ingredients but make sure you have all the important ingredients in the bowl (Chia, Cinnamon, Flaxseed, honey):
Good For You Yogurt Bowl
1/2 cup of Astro Plain Balkan Style Yogurt (Probiotic! Keeps Your Gut Balanced)
Sprinkle the yogurt with Cinnamon (strengthens the immune system),
Chia Seeds (Today's Superfood packed with TONS OF NUTRITION),

Once you are happy with all of your ingredients, add your honey mix and enjoy your Nutritious Delicious Morning Breakfast!! You will be more energetic and focused for the Day!! Enjoy! Cheers to Good Eating!! :)
Jo-Jo's Peanut Butter & Chocolate Smoothie
By: Jody Joseph
This Smoothie hands down is my family’s Favourite! It is packed with Nutrition and is so delicious!! How Sneaky…. Your family will never know all that good nutrition that you snuck into it!! It’s a perfect fix for 7pm at night when you are craving something sweet or it is a great protein fix after a workout. It is also filling enough that I sometimes give it to my kids in the morning before school. At least I know they had some nutrition before running out the door.
You can use whatever liquid base you prefer. I used Almond milk this time, but I have used Vanilla Coconut Milk or Chocolate Soy Milk in the past. Milk would even work. This is my opportunity to also sneak in ground Flaxseed, Chia Seed, Hemp Seed and Cacao Nibs. I play around with the recipe depending on what I have in the pantry. Here is the base smoothie. These ingredients are necessary to achieve the taste that your family will love!! Hope your family likes it as much as mine!!
2 cups of Almond Milk
3 tbsp. of Peanut Butter
3 tbsp. of Nutella
2 Ripe Bananas
1 tbsp. Honey
2 tbsp. Chia Seeds
Dash of Cinnamon
1 tbsp. Falxseed (optional)
1tbsp. Hempseed (optional)
2 tbsp. Cacao Nibs or Dark Chocolate (optional)
1 ½ cups of ice
Blend all ingredients and enjoy!!
*Josephs now sells Chia Seeds!! Only $5.99!! Definitely cheaper than any place that I have seen!!
