Very quaint :)

This place is really on top of bringing the latest vegan products, the owner is also very receptive to bringing in something they do not yet carry! The lay out is something to get used to, but the place is small enough that within two trips you'll know where to find everything you need. Their prices are lower than the organic chains in town and sometimes they have neat specials on vegan chocolate bars which is a god-send!

Pros: Price, Location, Selection

Great Selection

I really like going here for the products offered (and the pricing!) - they have things like vegan chocolate bars and vegan jerky that you can't find at the "chain" health-food stores, their prices are also lower then P.O and Blush Lane.
The produce is always fresh - honestly the best produce out there.

The majority of employees are super friendly and helpful but the owner can be a bit...intense/abrupt. But don't let that fool you - it is still an awesome place to shop!!!

Pros: Price, Location, Selection
Cons: Store Size, Owner

One of my favorite stores

Earth's General Store has a good variety of vegetarian and vegan products. Vegan items are labelled vegan on the shelves which makes it super easy to shop - you don't have to read product labels! The staff are always eager to help and are knowledgable about the products. I love this store, but don't visit too often as it's quite a drive for me.

Pros: Great parking, Friendly, knowledgable staff, Wide selection

vegan heaven

Bought so many vegan products here that I had never heard of before, including hot jerky and coconut ice cream bars. Prices are mostly within reason, and products are very unique. If you are veg in Edmonton, this place is a must to check out.

Favorite vegan foods store

I love shopping at Earth's General Store. Not only are they competitively priced with chain competitors like Planet Organic, but there staff are like a billion times more helpful and friendly. I love the wide selection of items that are available in bulk. EGS also puts on classes and workshops that are great too! I'm only sad that I have to drive my car to get over to the store, would love if someday they were able to have a downtown location!

Pros: amazing selection, good prices, friendly staff

Rad people, good place

This place is great. The staff are friendly, they tend to carry items that are impossible to find (vegan chocolate bars!) or items that other stores in the city don't carry. I am glad they offer refills on products like shampoo and soap with your own container. I like that they offer literature and leaflets about world and local events. They also have a kids area that I am not nervous about leaving my child in while I shop. A+!

Pros: Kids area, good prices, refills!
Cons: A little out of the way, Close too early sometimes

a great experience

wonderful staff, very helpful. a fantastic principle. GREAT products, even carry the infamous blackspot sneaker! Reasonably priced. I Love that these folks support a principle while in business - you can find lots of information and links to other organizations like Vegetarians of Alberta, etc.

Pros: awesome products, great principle, lots of information too
Cons: no stroller accessibility
