A Fiesta Farms in the East End. Does that exist?

Flinnflow | Nov 12, 2012 07:30 PM

I just moved from Trinity Bellwoods to Riverdale. I'd shop religiously at Fiesta Farms because it has fresh, local produce and products, as well as stuff that hopefully won't kill me, my kids or the planet in this lifetime. Is there anything remotely equivalent in the East End that is NOT the Big Carrot, which charges an arm and a leg for a bag of potatoes?
I've heard of Masellis and Summer Hill Market, what's with these places?
Sun Valley is no longer, then there's Foodland at Pape, but here we get into the territory of Loblaws, No Frills, Sobeys, Metro, etc., which SUCK very badly at having any local produce and products on their shelves!
Just to drive the point further. It's a one-stop shop which combined with Strictly Bulk would make life perfect. For example. It's almost winter now. Is there one grocery store in the East End where one can get Niagara prosciutto, Ontario jerusalem artichokes and, say, leeks or cabbages from Ontario plus bread from a Toronto bakery, as well as Mapleton, Western or Liberty dairy, and eggs from real chickens?
