Lady & Sons, why the neg. reviews?

Bought a really nice bag of organic lamb meat, some organic veggies and some other items the other day from Lady and Sons. The woman there is incredibly nice and there's a ton of healthy product in there so anyone still looking for a good butcher or a place to pop-in and buy produce and snacks on the way home, south side of Queen across from where Jones Ave. ends is where you need to be!

Made a red wine curry stew and some roasted rosemary garlic veggies and everything turned out a treat!

I read in some older reviews.. well not that old, a month ago, that the place was a bit of a mess and had nothing? When I went in there yesterday there was some decent produce, more than I expected, brocolli, potatoes, onions, (since it IS a butcher and not a produce store) and also lots of crackers, biscuits, jams and various preserves and sauces etc. Organic/health snacks, some beans and lentils and whatnot, and they have a peanut butter machine, and really, the meat looked good. About as good as say Strickland's on Greenwood or the counter at any grocery store.

I don't know what it was like previously but I was not deterred in any way from the store yesterday. I encourage everyone to go check it out, I think it must have gotten better since they opened because to me it was just another small grocery store, I was surprised to read the previous neg. reviews here.
