We consider our customers to be our neighbours and our neighbours to be our friends. We have been proudly providing quality produce and ingredients for our community since 1915. We know that Picone‘s was a gathering place to warm yourself by the wood stove and hear the latest news of the area. We are thankful to be able to provide the same quality and standards that our Grandfather did back then in the exact same location. He believed in 3 simple ideals. Always provide Fresh. Always provide Quality. Always provide the Best.
We pride ourselves in bringing the options of healthy eating to the forefront. By choosing food options that keep health in the forefront we know that we are genuinely bringing our best to you. Our goal is to be able to make your meals more flavourful using the best ingredients available. We hand select what we sell just as our ancestors did. It is this commitment to choosing only the freshest ingredients we can get which allows us to provide the best options for your table.
By carefully selecting brands that keep healthy options as their focus we try to provide an ongoing selection of diverse and unique products to help you create your best meals.
With the help of our importing friends we have access to a world of flavours. We are proud to bring a rich array of imported Olive Oils into our shop. We are fortunate to work with ethically trusted brands that provide us with some of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil that leaves Italy, Spain, Greece and beyond. We try to provide a variety of Oils from many countries for differing pallets and tastes.
Not only do we carry a large selection of Olive Oils but we also have Avocado, Walnut, Hazelnut and a few infused with Lemon!
With Local Farmers being our go-to, we strive to bring in the best produce we can source. Our local suppliers provide the freshest resources to us so that we can share these incredible items with you, our customer.
By outsourcing to farmers who personally harvest their own crops, we know that they stand behind what they grow. It is this commitment to detail and invested time that attracts us to these farmers and their produce.
If we are unable to draw from our farmers due to seasonal constraint, we are pleased to provide access to unique fruits and vegetables of the highest quality. We only bring in well timed produce that wasn’t picked too soon. We know produce that is picked too early tends to have less flavour than if it’s allowed to mature. It’s those items that we offer at Picone’s.
At Picone’s we share a rustic new menu with our customers each week. We curate various meals in house that offer a variety of choices to take home and enjoy. We love that our prepared foods only have ingredients found within our shop, making it the best pantry to cook from. Baked fresh daily quiches and artisanal sandwiches are created using next level flavour combinations that will have you coming back the next day for a different option. From main meal entrees and sides to salads and our specialty days where we craft our much loved Picone’s pizza, you’re sure to find something that will please your pallet.
Our freezer section is where you can find a variety of weekly items such as our sought after Picone’s lasagna, meatballs, tiramisu or crisps to name a few. We also carry other brands that offer a variety of choice as well as specialty filled pastas by Bertagni from Italy.
As a customer you can review our menu in the shop or it posts each Tuesday morning on Facebook and Instagram. Calling to reserve items that are listed on the menu or posts from our social feed is welcomed and recommended as items tend to sell out.
One of our long time passions at Picone’s is to be able to provide beautiful plants and flowers to our customers. Whether it is fresh cut or potted we enjoy selling bundles of beautiful healthy plants for you to enjoy in your home.
Our fresh cut flowers have young tender closed buds, making them a long lasting treasure. We enjoy seeing our customers select their favourite colours for themselves or as a quick last minute gift to share. Our flowers are a wonderful add on to brighten your day.
Our potted plants are seasonal gems. We are blessed to be able to offer various potted spring bulbs for sale that will easily transplant to your gardens for the following growing seasons. We truly enjoy seeing these plants leave our shop. It means that these little gems will be finding a new home to thrive in and that is simply inspiring!
Our spring plant sale is a big event for us. It speaks to when our Mum sold plants when we were younger. She loved being able to provide an avenue for Herbs and Flowers, old fashioned varieties, to be sold to her community. It’s with that mindset that we continue to offer select varieties of Heirloom Tomatoes during the beginning of our summer season at Picone’s.
Our summer plants tend to arrive during the last week of May to ensure that the soil is warm and an inviting option for your newly purchased plants. Our hope is that your new plants will thrive so that you will be able to have delicious fresh vegetables from your own gardens to enjoy!
