Organic Garage - Kerr St. Oakville - great prices and selection

Just stopped in at the Organic Garage which has opened up in Alternatives old space on Kerr St. At first pass, I was pretty impressed with the selection and prices. I picked up some BC cherries and 1/4 watermelon, both organic and relatively inexpensive. They tasted amazing. I also picked up something I'd never seen before -- coconut water in tetrapaks that touts itself as a better alternative to sports drinks for a bunch of reasons. They have plain and lightly flavoured. Tried the plain, not bad and have yet to try the Mango flavoured one I purchased. I was also surprised at their selection of everything and promised myself to make it a regular stop when I am in Oakville.

I believe Alternatives lost the battle with the newly opened Whole Foods. I'm not a huge fan of Whole Foods, so hopefully this place will survive.

Anyone have any other experiences with this store?
