The Friendly Butcher

Ken and Donna MacDonald opened The Friendly Butcher in 1996 with a mission to support local farmers and bring great-tasting locally raised products to the Yonge Lawrence Village. Ken’s previous employment made him realize that there was a real need for a store that supported local farms and provided excellent service to hungry customers, and decided to create his own business to fill these gaps.  After 18 years of growth, The Friendly Butcher remains committed to this mission, and has evolved to include a full production kitchen with fresh packaged meals and a full-service catering business.

Our staff has expertise in a variety of culinary fields, from hands-on preparation to food and wine pairing, and we’re always happy to help you decide what to cook!
