    Hey Wilmagrace
    Its not exactly in the GTA - but you gotta try the Fifthtown Artisinal Cheese Factory down in Prince Edward County - just south of Picton - that's abt 2 hours east of TO - but a great destination for a Sunday drive - there are educational tours of the facility (which is modern and spotless!) free tastings of the various cheeses they produce and lots of very interesting varieties - lavender or maple soft spreading cheese and several washed rind and other ones that are really FAB!!

      What neighbourhood are you looking to shop/dine in? I can name a couple of places in Cabbagetown/Corktown, but not sure if that's useful to you.

      Are sheep's dairy products okay? If it is, you're in luck...

        Finding goat dairy products seems to be getting easier in Ontario.
        One reason given to me by a Mennonite grower is the lack of herd quotas, which means more farmers can get into the business compared to dairy cows.

        Hewitt's goat milk is available in many supermarkets, including Loblaw and Price Chopper.

        A well established goat milk cheese maker, Woolwich, from Orangeville, appears at the north St Lawrence market every Saturday. They have a wide variety of cheeses, and can give lots of helpful advice.

        I found a Woolwich triple creme at Costco last week; can't wait to open it...

          You can easily have a 'goat cheese' Pizza at Roma Ristorante on Bloor Street West (corner of Gladstone, 1 block east of Dufferin). Make sure to tell tell them that only 'goat cheese' on the Pizza or they might be inclined to put mozzarella as well.....Goat Cheese Pizza is the ONLY kind of Pizza for me and they do a fine job! As for buying 'run of the mill' goat cheese products, I buy a goat cheese cheddar from Loblaws, they have other choices as well. I am sure some of the Specialty Cheese Stores have many other choices... I'm just saying Loblaws for convenience when I do my weekly shopping.

          Goat's milk yogurt and goat's milk is readily available at some of the chain supermarkets like Longo's. I enjoy Liberté's Goat's milk yogurt -- it comes in a 500 g tub and in those individual cups as well and in a few flavours.

          There's also sheep's milk yogurt at some Longo's too -- Krinos brand.

            I've noticed lots of goat's milk products at Fiesta Farms.
