I haven't tried Murray's eggs but heard they are good as from heritage hens. He sells them at Withrow Farmers market. However the market is closed for the season.
My friend said Murrays farm told her they sell them at café Fiorentina on Danforth as well.

Hi smfan,
I think it was with the oatmeal in the flour aisle? Or near there? I saw it on Sat and two weeks ago. Was planning to get some next time. They still had quite a bit left on Sat.

Apple picking suggestions please?

Avalon orchards has organic u-pick apples. They actually sell apples and cider at Evergreen Brickworks farmers market too. I haven't gone before so not too sure if anything available for young children.

Where can I find Ontario, integrated pest management peaches (or organic) in Toronto?

Visit the farmers markets. I would suggest Dufferin Grove or Brickworks Evergreen. This vendor has the most amazing peaches.

I saw tree ripened mangoes from Israel at billy bishop this morning. $16.99 a box...it had a nice floral smell but didn't get any. Wondering if it's any good.

I prefer the pasta at the college location but the chicken meatballs at this location is much tastier. I do find their regular meatballs a bit dry so always ask for chicken instead.
