Winnipeg’s Largest
Independent Family
Owned and Operated
Grocery Store.

We have been in the
heart of many
communities for
many years.

We offer a wide selection of products which includes a large organic and fair trade offering, fresh produce, and a meat counter that is a cut above the rest. We are known for our full service, always well stocked meat department.

FOODFARE was originally a chain of independent stores, with the idea of servicing the community around it and providing exceptional service and operates based on the communities needs.

Wajih “Moe” Zeid bought a Payfair store in 1977. After 10 years in business, he was approached by the Foodfare group to convert his store into a Foodfare. That location is still in operation at 247 Lilac Street. Over the years, other owners began retiring, and when a opportunity presented itself, Moe bought other Foodfare’s.

Today, the Zeid family operates 5 different locations, and FOODFARE is solely owned by the Zeid Family. You will see many members of the family on the store floor, providing that “old school service” that has disappeared over the years. Moe Zeid is still involved with the family business, along with his sons and daugthers, and numerous grand children.


At FOODFARE we will always endevour to give you a warm,friendly greeting and offer you any assistance we can when you enter our store.

If you purchase a product from us and find it unsatisfactory,return it to your nearest FOODFARE location with a proof of purchase and we will replace it with a similar product,or completely refund your money.

I am fortunate to have a handy Foodfare close to hand. I used to stop in regularly on my way home from work. Now that I’m retired I have the luxury of going at a less busy time of day. Love the butcher shop. Variety of organic and free trade products is great
