Great New Supermarket

Its about a year old actually, but its a remarkable new addition to grocery stores in Toronto. Its called Fresh Value and its on Islington just north of the 401, tucked into the old Rexdale Plaza. At about 60,000 sq.ft., its sizable and, as far as I can tell, is run by Asians and is designed to service south Rexdale's strong Indian, Pakistani, Carribean and Latin customer base.

Its clean, the produce is incredibly fresh and well-presented, the "seafood room" is active and unique, and the sheer selection of ethnic product is breathtaking. The prices are great.

Its not like T&T (which I love), instead Fresh Value is less corporate, (less "perfect"), more of a "market" and caters to much wider range of communities.
