Fiesta Farms, 200 Christie at Essex, 416-537-1235
If you could only shop at one store in Toronto, Fiesta Farms might be it. It’s democracy in action. Older neighbourhood folks looking for some baccala and a box of Tide rub shoulders with Blundstoners, their reusable hemp bags loaded with local sustainable produce, goat’s milk and growth-hormone-free meat. It’s like West Side Story with a happy ending (and less dancing).
