Good prices, great owner/staff - Edit

Baldwin Naturals is a great place to shop. It no longer has a produce section.

I used to think it was pricey but I am now finding that on MANY of the products I look for, including essential oils and supplements, the prices are almost always lower than elsewhere, even a couple of my go to places in Kensington Market.

Eva, the owner, will order in supplements for you. She is quick and efficient (sometimes I feel rushed), but very nice. All the staff I have ever encountered there are very helpful and pleasant.

Like many other independent health food stores, it can be a tight squeeze when there are other customers in one's general vicinity, but that's to be expected.

They currently carry an AMAZING vegan chocolate bar I just discovered - IChoc - which is made with rice milk so that it is "milky" - white chocolate flavours as well as a scrumptious orange almond "milk" chocolate. It has not been easy to find these bars elsewhere. YUM.

Pros: good/competitive prices, friendly owner/staff, independent

Cons: sometimes a tight squeeze but to be expected!

Hey If You Have Money To Burn, Shop Here - Edit

I live at Grangetown which is only a couple of blocks away from this health food store. It is known by people in the neighborhood to have a great selection with very steep prices. I went there once for protein powder and did not buy anything due to price.
Well, today I had a major emergency, I ran out of Guar Gum. I use it to make my shakes and thought I had a bag left but I was wrong and I was completely out. I used to buy it at Loblaws for 4.99 a bag but out of convenience, I buy it at Bulk Barn for 5.39 a bag.
Didn't feel like hopping in the car and since this was such a small ticket item, I went to Baldwin. I truly was prepared to pay a dollar more and even two dollars more but guess what? No, you are wrong! Guess again .... still wrong.
The price was a gauging $8.99 cents for the same size bag!!!!
They are absolutely ridiculous. If you have money to burn, or think the local health food store is chic or something ... then by all means, go and patronize.
If you are an intelligent, price aware shopper, stay completely away from this store.
