Choices Markets Yaletown, Vancouver

When I walked in the door to this place I literally stopped in my tracks and gazed in wonderment at what was afore me, it seemed too good to be true. It turned out that it was too good to be true.
This is a big place with a wide variety of products on offer. It's not a health food shop, it's a big expensive deli that happens to include some health foods among it's stock.
The 1st issue for me is that it is not exclusively vego. This is typified by the substantial butchery section. There are meat products available througout other parts of the shop.
Secondly this isn't a place for a bargain. $4.49 for a litre of soya milk? $3 for a veg samosa? Someone is laughing all the way to the bank.
I went to the sandwich counter and asked if any of the sandwiches were vegan veggie? I was told that none were but if I wanted one could be made consisting of humus and salad. I decided to go for it. The bread was 2 slices of from an every day pre sliced loaf. I was charged $6 for the privilege.
Most useful about this place is the opening hours - 8 am to 11 pm 7 days a week, so could come in handy. It is located in downtown on Richards St.
Overall, very unimpressed.
Vegan vego friendly, Open long hours
Not 100% vego, Expensive
