Concordia Gem

4 Posted on 11 / 01 / 2009

As a Concordia student I love le Frigo Vert. Once I graduate I'm sure that I will continue to love it.

As other reviewers have mentioned it is small so don't expect the same selection you'd find at larger health food stores. What you will find is a quaint, well-operated and well-staffed co-op which offers very reasonable prices on organic food, baked goods, personal hygiene products and the best quinoa I've found in Montreal - so few bad grains! As a full time Concordia student you can take advantage of a 15% discount on all purchases which is also offered to members of the co-op.

The all-volunteer staff is well trained, very helpful and always friendly.

The lounge in the back, while not a place I typically hang out, is a nice place to retreat to and enjoy the company of like-minded people.

Pros: Great red and white quinoa, Concordia student discount, Great volunteer staff
Cons: Limited selection

frigo deeego

known as "the friggolo diggolo" amongst those "in the know," this lil-known gem of a health food store is always packed with babes and really great deals on nutrional yeast and stuff. be sure to try the "go nuts" nut mix, it's "tres tres bon" as we say in la belle langue.

Pros: smokers
Cons: no chicken

"nice concept"

4 Posted on 11 / 08 / 2008

i got introduced to le frigo vert when i first enrolled at concordia back in 2005. i was a regular visitor, the coffee was great and they had a backroom where you could just sit, study or chill out. the selection of products is not that impressive (it's a very small store), but you'll find your basics. they also have a nice variety of ready-to-go meals like wraps and sandwiches in the fridge section and delicious samosas (used to be only 50 cents a piece). although i don't hang out there as frequently as i used to i still drop by sometimes for a quick snack.

Pros: ethics, ready-to-go meals, student-run service
Cons: limited selection, higer prices for grad students

Le Frigo Vert is amazing. It is a non-profit organisation run by Concordia University students; whenever they are making profit, they lower their prices!! So you're guaranteed to get awesome prices. It's a great place to get bulk stuff (beans, rice, sugar, salt, flour, grains, etc.), most of it organic and fair trade. They also have a good selection of organic canned foods, vegan goodies, some veggies and personal care products.

There is also a small lounge with organic fair trade coffee and tea, and often some vegan cake to go with it! Amazing!

Pros: Cheap, Organic/fair trade/vegan, Friendly volunteer staff

    just a little correction, frigo vert is not actually run by concordia students (in fact less than half the people working there for the past few years have been students).
