If you live anywhere in downtown Toronto, I urge you to drop into Fiesta Farms for a visit, I guarantee you won't regret it! Lucky for us, this independent, family-owned grocery store is just 10 minutes from our house, right beside Big A's school.
It has the most amazing selection of organic, locally grown, artisanal and healthy food products, along side the usual grocery brands. Their prices are exceptional too.
This morning I went to get a few things, including Adam's skimmed lactose-free milk, because they sell it for a great price. Although I'm currently having a love affair with kamut and oat flours, my friend Sheri swears that spelt is the way to go. So I immediately was drawn to a display of organic spelt flour. One of the staff told me it is locally produced and was just delivered that day by the farmer himself. Wow, it doesn't get any better than that!!
Of course, even though I only came for a few things, I ended up leaving with TONS of stuff, irresistably drawn to sales on organic frozen veggies (for the girls - they seem to prefer the blander, softer taste and texture of frozen), pumpkin seed butter, organic whole wheat flour, agave syrup, and some other goodies.
