Beloved Toronto grocer Summerhill Market is set to soon open its fourth location at 484 Eglinton Ave. W., in the Forest Hill neighbourhood. Company president Brad McMullen says the new outpost, which takes over the former home of Edo restaurant, has been in the works for over a year and the building has been given a top-to-bottom makeover.
Once completed, the new grocery store will span across two storeys. Full details about the new location are still under wraps but like Summerhill Market’s other locations across Toronto, McMullen says the Forest Hill store will feature a full selection of house-made prepared foods and grocery essentials, as well as a meat counter for prime cuts.

McMullen adds that construction on the new store should be wrapping up within the next two weeks and the Summerhill Market team is currently aiming for a March opening. However as with almost everything amid the pandemic, McMullen says the lockdown could delay the projected timeline.
The first Summerhill Market was founded by Frank McMullen in Rosedale in 1954. The market now has additional locations in Sherwood and the Annex, as well as a floral boutique on Mount Pleasant Road. The three market locations are currently open for in-store shopping and online ordering. Delivery is offered for online orders, with curbside pick-up also available at the Rosedale location.
