I’ve compiled a list of stores that sell organic produce and products within the GTA – it is by no means a complete list of all the stores or options available but it is a good place to start.  Organic foods are generally more expensive, however, as with anything else, you can find deals and the store that best fits your budget.

Established in 1993, the Natures Emporium is a family run business that sells only organic and natural foods from local farmers to big brands. They have three locations in the GTA.
