Feta Cheese in Toronto

Where is there decent, reasonably-priced feta? Have a name of a producer and /or retailer?

I guess reasonably-priced is around $20/kg. I'd like to buy it 500g or so at a time

Most of the feta I see is made in Canada - I love to buy domestic cheese - but its all horrible. the cow milk product is completely without taste and at times brutally salty. The goat's milk feta is often tastier/sharper but also crazy salty. Watering down the brine does de-salinate it but seems to de-taste and de-texture it as well.

I have tried Krinos, tre-stella, woolwich and most commercial producers. Mostly I am looking in supermarkets.

Okay, I have avoided Alex Farms, cheese boutique and other high-end retailers - its feta for goodness sake.

Anyone have any ideas?
