Great grocery store, always stocking new products.

This is the store I buy about 60% of my groceries at, I love it. I've been shopping there for years.

They always stock new products, have samples and the staff are great. Lots of vegan options and most of the food is vegetarian (there is some meat in the freezer aisle now). Many vegan ice cream desserts, 'cheese' options, they stock a lot of local food too.

I go at least once a week and i've never been dissatisfied. They also have a great points system to get money off if you go there often. Produce is organic and local for the most part, so it is expensive but it's good quality. Lots of bulk spices.

Pros: Great Staff, Good Prices, Amazing Selection
Cons: Expensive Produce

Rainbow Foods in Ottawa has everything. They have a great selection of vegan products including local made artisan nut cheeses, locally made vegan frozen meal choices and locally grown quinoa!. If you cannot find a product here, you likely cannot find it anywhere in Ottawa! For items carried at grocery stores their prices are comparable for the same products. They offer many organic items and offer gluten free tours educating about so many items available. The staff is friendly and they have a rewards program....I first went for a merchant vegan day and discovered so many products... There are even kefir and kombucha products and cultures. They have both sprouting supplies and great sprouted products. It has become my main grocery store.

Pros: great variety, local products and imports, clean store with friendly staff

They have a very big collection of vegetarian foods. These are my favourites, organic pine nuts, organic brown rice flour, organic parmesan cheese and different kinds of bread.

Pros: big collection
Cons: some items are overpriced
