Hi all,

We are travelling as a family to Toronto next weekend and will be staying at the Marriott Residence Inn as the suites have a full kitchen and not just a kitchenette. Does anyone know of a good grocery store/supermarket in that area? We will bring bread, crackers, cookies, etc that are safe for my kids, but I'd be looking for things like So Nice soy milk, plus fresh fruits, veggies, meats that are organic if possible. THANKS!

I also wish that DH had just booked us on West Jet, but we are on AC and with all the public's backlash against the new allergy accommodations, I'm hesitant to single us out.

There's a Metro on Shepherd near Bathurst and a Real Canadian Superstore near Dufferin and Steeles.

Thanks so much, Susan. Does anyone know if the Superstores in the Toronto area have a good selection of healthy/organic foods - both packaged and fresh? Only one in my area has a wide selection, while the others, just a few kilometres away, have not nearly as much. Thanks.

I find that some Loblaws stores are better than others but allthe Superstores I've beento in Ottawa carry an extensive selection of allergen free items. Why don't you contact the Customer Service and enquire?

Customer Relations Centre: Toll Free 1-800-296-2332
Customer Relations Hours of Operation:
Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. EST

For e-mail/fax enquiries (it's nice to have the info in hand especially when travelling):
