Better Bulk at Woodbine & Danforth - anyone been?

I noticed a new shop on the south side of Danforth, just west of Woodbine, across from Loomis & Toles. Haven't had a chance to go in yet, but maybe others have...

  1. Haven't been by yet but according to the local community news, the place is "funky and ultra clean, items are affordable with no excess packaging and lots of organic and fair trade choices. Suggestions and orders are welcome. .... care is taken to handle the nuts and other allergens so as not to contaminate other items." They carry Harmony Organic Milk.

    lol, btw I still call that place Loomis & Toles too as do all my neighbours even though ownershop/signage has changed.

      Hahahaha, I knew it had changed, but forgot, and I can't even remember what it's called. Anyway, it's across from the Loomis & Toles clone...

      Will have to make it by there. Sounds promising.

        This place sounds like a clone of "Foody's" in Pickering, the "upscale", overpriced answer to Bulk Barn. I do wonder if Foody's will last out here though, as it never seems to have a lot of customers....

      2. 2035 Danforth Ave. I think the 'add a restaurant' facility is frozen while it undergoes renovations.

        1. It's definitely a great, much-needed addition to the neighbourhood. Along with the aforementioned Harmony Organic (in bottles!) they have an excellent selection of bulk foods, including fleur de sel, organic apricots (much tastier than the regular), I Deal coffee beans, gluten-free products and some organic groceries (Cocoa Camino chocolate bars, cooking oils). Very friendly owners and decent hours, too.

          1. I've been - well rounded bulk store, eco friendly. Also, they sell great coffee, and if you bring your own container, eco-friendly laundry cleaner. Affordable, and easy to navigate as well. I'm converted.

            1. I like this store. They have a great selection, prices are good and the guy who runs it is very friendly and really cares about his customers. They have Bubbies pickles too. Yay!
