Organic Food in Oakville/Mississauga

  • g

I know my search is probably futile, but I would like to know if anyone out there knows of any moderately priced organic food store or supermarkets in Oakville or Mississauga? I have been to Whole Foods Market and while it's excellent, I think they're way overpriced. Any suggestions?

  1. There's an organic grocer on Lakeshore just east of Hurontario in Port Credit(hope that's not Whole Foods Market as the name slips me!). Also a decent butcher next door.

      The name of the shop is Alternatives.

    2. There is an Alternatives location in Oakville, On Kerr St. just north of Speers Rd. (on the east side of Kerr St., south of the railroad tracks). There is also an Indian grocer beside it with dope samosas (when fresh).

      1. Real Canadian Superstore at #5 and Trafalgar has a huge organic selection.

        1. Alternatives in Missisauga is closed now, but apparently it's reopening as a Planet Organic.

            Organic Garage opened in that location last year. What's this about Planet Organic?

            Organic Garage sells beautiful organic produce and groceries at prices far below those of Whole Foods. They carry fresh Rowe Farm meats exclusively. As far as I know, it is still up and running. Anyone heard otherwise?


          2. Organic Garage is going strong.
            Expanding it's product lines to some prepped foods now as well.
