If you’re into local, natural food, you might think it’s difficult to achieve your lifestyle here in the city. But don’t despair, you don’t need to go live in the sticks just to get some pesticide-free produce. In fact, you’ll find Toronto has a wide variety of options for natural and organic foodies. So from farmers markets to restaurants, here are some of the best organic, local, and sustainable food businesses in Toronto.
One of the great things about organic eating in the city is the abundance of organic restaurants. For example, one great restaurant for lovers of natural organic eating is Thrive Organic Restaurant. Located at 3473 Lake Shore Blvd W Etobicoke, Thrive commits to using local, fair trade and organic ingredients whenever possible, while offering healthy, nutritious and tasty food.
Another tasty option is iQ, a seasonal kitchen and café dedicated to local, sustainable, and balanced food. With 9 locations across the GTA, you’re sure to find a local iQ.
However, most of us don’t spend our entire lives eating in restaurants and cafés. So if you’re on the look out for a place to buy fresh organic ingredients, don’t worry, we have options for you. One of Toronto’s favourite organic, natural and local grocery stores is Fiesta Farms. Located at 200 Christie Street, Fiesta Farms is Toronto’s largest independent grocery store and garden centre, selling a wide range of organic, local, and artisan products.
Another great option for natural, local, organic food is the farmers market at St Lawrence Market. St Lawrence Market located on 92-95 Front Street East hosts vendors Monday to Saturday with fresh local produce, meat, cheese, freshly baked bread, and much more.
In the mood for food delivery? Farm’r creates fresh local, healthy meals, to be delivered to your door frozen, for you to reheat and enjoy. The brand started out as a stall in St Lawrence market, but was forced to close due to COVID-19. They have since rebranded as a frozen food delivery service located at 140A The Esplanade that makes fresh, local and healthy meals easy at home.
Whatever kind of food you’re craving, you can likely get it natural and local in Toronto!
