I just heard from a neighbour that the produce store at Queen and Euclid is closing! This store is such a great place, it will be missed enormously. I shop there almost every day. The produce is always fresh, the staff are friendly, the flowers are beautiful. I am so upset. Even the restaurants in the area shop here. They have spoiled me for all other produce. Their green beans are perfect - I think they pick them over obsessively so there are NEVER any wrinkly or brown ends, they are laid out perfectly parallel. Every time I look at beans anywhere else they look like they're ready for the compost in comparison.
The rumour is that David's Shoes is taking over their store front and Heel Boy next door. I will miss Heel Boy almost as much. How often can you go the the corner for some salad greens (ALWAYS perfect never any rotten bits) and come home with a great pair of boots?
