January 2018


To our amazing customers,

Thank you for making 2017 another great year.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we are moving on from our little Deli & Pantry.

We are stepping back to focus on our growing family and our preserves line.

We are very excited to let you know that Fresh City Farms will be taking over ownership of the store.

They are a wonderful company with a similar focus on high quality local and organic products. There will be a few new faces working alongside our long-term staff as we continue to offer you great customer service.

Please stay tuned for the many great improvements in 2018 including an expanded prepared foods program and organic fruits and veggies.

We cannot express how much we appreciate your support and the support of the neighbourhood over the past 6 years.

Stasis Preserves wholesale will still be operating and we can be reached at

Thanks so much, feel free to reach out to us via e-mail to keep in touch.

In 2010, co-owners Emily & Julian teamed up to bring Stasis to six of Toronto’s best farmer’s market during their first growing season.

Opening a retail location in 2011 gave Julian a permanent kitchen to create all kinds of creative and delicious recipes, from preserves to ready-made meals. A red seal certified cook, Julian has always been passionate about food. Since launching Stasis Preserves, Julian has continued to explore his passion for local food as the business’ master recipe creator and preservation expert. From spreads, to pickles, to ferments, to hot sauce, Julian is always exploring new ways to add more flavour and freshness to life. Sourcing quality products and ingredients is a continuous journey for his curious personality and passion for clean ingredients and sustainable cuisine.

Emily’s diverse background includes many front of house roles as well as working with a number of small businesses. Self-motivated, with a degree in philosophy, environmental restoration, and a passion for sustainability, Emily is deeply connected to the way the Stasis business operates, ensuring it has a positive effect on the food system, customers, and retail partners.

Emily and Julian opened Stasis determined to be a visible member of the local food community.

They are devoted to participating in and strengthening farmers markets and other food events in the community of Toronto.

They often explore different areas of Ontario to discover the best products the province has to offer. Julian and Emily have travelled to Quebec and other provinces to collect great products and showcase Canada’s artisans.
