Happy to report that they have organic strawberries and blueberries at the Billy Bishop location.
They also now have frozen organic strawberries and blackberries too! Have only seen frozen organic cherries at this location.

Pig Tails

Just saw on the weekend that Field Sparrow farms also has pig tails.
They don't list it on their website but I am sure you can email them to inquire. They sell their products at some farmers markets and coops.

Great suggestion! Definitely interested in such a thread.

Buttermilk Brands in Toronto?

I got some buttermilk from Monforte Dairy from the farmers market. They also have a store downtown. It's 1% though

Eggs from European Chickens

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.

Purchasing Half an Organic Cow

They are offering their beef for sale outside of their CSA this year.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - July to September

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.

I saw it at billy bishop last week.

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 them at North York Civic Centre Farmers market last week as well.

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.

By Toronto standard, Great authentic Macau/Portuguese food inside 'New Kennedy Mall' food court, Hwy #7 and Kennedy.

Was in the area and remembered this post so picked up some take out from there. Really enjoyed the Portuguese chicken and sawdust pudding cake.
Will def return to try out their other items.
Thanks for the recommendation!
