Awesome place

Posted on 03 / 26 / 2010

Really great store, they have some of the friendliest and most helpful staff around. Fresh baked vegan breads/buns come in daily, lots of vegan options for anything you can think of. I have even seen vegan alfredo sauce mix and cabbage rolls there. They have lots of raw food products, too. Their produce is all organic and beyond compare quality-wise. They often have absolutely giant, smooth tomatoes, peppers grapefruits, leeks, and greens. Their greens are well cared for by hand and are re-crisped in water nightly. All produce is organic and handling is done completely by hand and with care. They have a good section of books about health and some vegan cookbooks as well. This store really caters to people with celiac's disease as well, and other allergies. The prices are somewhat high, but if you join the rewards club you get $10 off for every $500 or so that you spend. They also mark down all breads/perishables to 50% cost 1 day before expiry. Really extensive bulk section with every grain you can think of, $7.99/kg for quinoa, which is one of the best prices in calgary. I can't say enough good about this place, you just need to go and see for yourself.

Pros: gorgeous produce, lots of vegan options, friendly staff
Cons: some high prices

This wonderful store has been in Calgary for years. The staff is always helpful and knowledgable. They have a great variety of bakery goods, dried and canned goods, fruits and veg, organic meats for the non-vegs as well as personal care products. Their prices are competitive and sales are frequent. Ask them about their frequent buyers club.

Pros: beautiful store, friendly people, good selection
Cons: not enough parking on a Sat., needs nice music system
