Organic Groceries in Etobicoke

For a variety of reasons, my wife and I have decided to "go organic" as much as we possibly can. Is there a reasonable organic grocery store in Etobicoke (as close to Bloor & Kipling as possible)?

A "one-stop" option would be ideal, since we don't really have the time to run around for various types of groceries (although we will if we have to).

In case it matters, we currently shop mainly at the big Loblaws on East Mall north of Bloor, which has a pretty good boxed/packaged organic section but is lacking in the fresh food dept.

Thanks in advance!

Craig

    You could join the Good Food Box program, and pick-up a box weekly. You don't have control over the contents, but it's an excellent value, with an organic option.

      Wow! I had never heard of this, but it's a great idea... and I like the element of surprise. If there's a dropoff point near us, we will definitely try this. Thanks xtal!
