We have an ever growing bulk section with dried fruits and grains, as well as many dry goods and weekly deliveries of fresh baked bread (including wheat and gluten free options). We have a selection of Keto products to assist you in transitioning over to a low carb, sugar free lifestyle. We also have weekly deliveries of fresh salads from LIVE Organic Restaurant in Toronto (Wednesdays) & The Pulp Restaurant. We also do special orders to ensure that your favourite salad is here for you!
