In the summer of 1999, Jill Wilcox donned a hard hat and work boots, and put the finishing touches on a tiny store in the newly built Covent Garden Market, in London, Ontario. It was the first Jill’s Table.
The store specialized in bringing some of the world’s best oils and vinegars to foodies in the London area. Today, at its much larger location at 115 King Street, in downtown London, Jill’s Table continues to define itself as a “Feast of Kitchen Essentials.” Still carrying the best selection of oils and vinegars, Jill’s Table now provides a wide variety of specialty food items, kitchen gadgets, cookware, bakeware and fabulous cooking classes.
An award recipient of the prestigious CGTA Retailer of the Year and subject of numerous business and lifestyle newspaper and magazine articles, Jill’s Table always has great new products sourced from a number of international gift shows, as well as specialized local and Canadian products. Its selection of kitchen essentials is the ideal place for the home and professional cook to find the items they need. And, to give a foodie the perfect gift.
I love working with our customers. The kitchen is the heart of any home, and our customers are looking to build that kitchen or continuing to supply their kitchens with items and products that round out the warmth of their homes.
In the summer of 2014, Jill’s Table underwent a major renovation in celebration of 15 years in business. Inspired by Jill’s favourite shops found in idyllic French and Italian villages, Jill’s Table now focuses even more on the kitchen as the heart of the home. Upon entering the store, visitors are greeted by beautiful products and a space filled with passion for all things food. There is always something happening in the kitchen to get people excited about cooking. Come in to sample great food products, pick up that essential item missing in your kitchen or tap into our fountain of culinary knowledge! We hope to see you soon.
