Famous Foods is an institution in Vancouver. My recent visit was fun. I’m glad I went so I could see for myself what they have to offer. They carry so many different foods not available in conventional grocery stores. If you are looking for gluten-free, organic, natural etc… they probably have it. The bulk nut selection was wonderful. They don’t have many non-packaged items though which was sad. I did purchase a baguette packaged only in a paper sleeve; organic store-ground peanut butter; a bar of Green & Black’s Organic fair-trade chocolate bar (yum, my fave); an organic fair-trade mango and some store-packed bulk organic granola. All at very reasonable prices. Everything tastes great too! These were definite treats! The granola itself was such a buy. I can’t believe it filled up my two containers. My sister-in-law was with me and found organic eggs at a way better price than other stores. I might find myself at Famous Foods again if I am in the neighbourhood and in need of something unique.Famous Foods has what must be the coolest, smallest elevator around!
What grocery store do you think I NEED to visit? I’m planning on going to Trader Joe’s on my next trip across the border. Apparently it has a great selection of organic food at great prices.
