One of the best mini-supermarkets in Toronto. Great selection of vegan and specialty products, awesome prices and frequent sales on organic berries, fruit, veggies..etc
I can't say enough good things about this business and I love their staff.

The Last Straw (or maybe not!)

Thoroughly editing/slashing a bad review shared here because it was based on bad information. Everything that happened, happened at Qi on Roncesvalles. My mother swears she said Qi, I swear she said SP. One friend said to leave it because SP deserves a bad review, but I cannot in good conscience share what is undeserved from my own experiences.

My favourite grocery store in the city! Excellent staff, great product selection, competitive prices on most packaged speciality goods and sales well worth checking out. Since moving to the east end of the city this is definitely what I miss most about living in the West End. 11/10 for you Sweet Potato!

This was my post from few weeks ago:

I usually happy with store selection is great, staff is friendly and they are proudly organic.
Except today... I was REALLY REALLY upset when I read "organic seedless watermelon"
It's paradox, seedless watermelon is genetically modified organism or GMO.
I was curious about so I asked how can it be both. I was told that "it was grown that way"

After a year of living in this neighbourhood I'm upgrading the review to 5 stars.

Steps away from the conventional no frills in Pacific you get the best of both worlds. I love coming in here to find a more cozier and friendly way to shop with much more diversity than No Frills.

Produce is expensive but when they have sales they are much worth it. Keep an eye out by joining their email list.

I can assure the staff are not obnoxious - they are all extremely sweet people. The prices are competitive for the quality of food you are buying. I do spend a lot when I go there but I know I'm paying for organic, vegan, items I can't necessarily find at No Frills.

I was happy with the size and selection of this store and the prices weren't bad. I would have liked a better meat selection, but given the size of the store, it was acceptable. The store was a little crowded which made navigating the aisles a bit of a challenge but I guess that just says they are doing something right to draw in the crowds.

This is the best most reasonably priced organic food shop in the west end. Produce is much fresher than anything you would get in Kensington market. Look for their special deals.

This has become such a staple for me. Some weeks I'll go to The Sweet Potato everyday, sometimes to pick up some groceries, other times just for a bag of sweet potato chips.

It still surprises me just how much stuff they have, from candy, to treats, to nuts and teas to veggies, fruits and meats.

It's been open for a few years now and it's still fun for me to visit and look at all the... more

The Sweet Potato is an organic grocery store that functions like an ordinary, albeit small no-nonsense grocery store. If you are committed to organic shopping, The Sweet Potato has most everything you would need. If you just need to pick up some delicious produce, fresh coffee, or some salty snacks, you can do that too.

While the prices may be a bit high, they actually seem reasonable for an... more

This is a pretty decent grocery store. GREAT selection of produce that isn't crammed onto only one shelf, properly laid out, lots of stock, good space to walk around in the aisles and lots to choose from in terms of organic foods.

The beauty section leaves something to be desired but then again, if you want beauty stuff, go to Kensington Market or Whole Foods.

They have a good range of other... more

I love it here. I have noticed that their vegetable broth is cheaper than Metro. I usually buy my toothpaste, bar soap, ice cream cones (which are really yummy!), pasta, cheddar bunnies, bunny fruit snacks, kimchi and other items here. Not bad for the price. Organic coconut milk is 2 for $5. They also sell organic chocolate hazelnut spread, yum! and marshmellows too! The staff are really... more

Beautiful fresh produce but not enough of it to meet demand, everything else is not anything you can't buy in Kensington Market for a tenth of the price. Last time I was there I paid $8 for four dried out cippolini onions. I avoid this place unless I'm desperate. I wish they focused on produce and on providing lots of it. The cashiers are obnoxiously friendly / fake / loud.

I admit I'm an unrepentant hippie who gets most of my produce at farmers' markets and has panic attacks when forced to patronise the local Price Chopper. But Toronto has winter, and even the most committed locavore needs vitamin C (not to mention shampoo.)

I will be the first to admit that I'm pretty easily impressed by little health food stores, but this grocery store has amazing selection at great prices. They have all of the usual local, gluten-free, vegetarian/vegan brands. The Nature's Path cereal is well-priced at $3.99 a box and almond milk was on sale - two cartons for $5! They have a wide selection of organic teas, including Stash and a... more

I eat a ton of produce in a given week, so I don't usually buy it at the Sweet Potato (unless it's on sale, which happens frequently) because even though it's reasonably priced for local and/or organic and/or fair trade, it would add up a bit too quickly. However, it's usually my first stop when shopping for grains (multiple types of rice and rice blends, quinoa, millet, oats, barley etc.),... more

I'm living in a Gluten Free world and the Sweet Potato is a great place to shop for groceries that I can eat.

They used to be the only location where I could find Bob's Red Mills Gluten Free All Purpose Flour.

There is now one other location in the Junction area (that I know of) that sells Bob's flour, but the Sweet Potato is the only store that carries a wide variety of other Bob's products... more

The store is useless, pretentious owner, management and staff. Dreary atmosphere. Limited product selection. Prices are fair. The check out counter is on a weird slant and is an eyesore. The store was late opening and opened only partially. I do not recommend it; having said that, it has the potential to be a wonderful store. Just get rid of the annoying, idealist, vegan staff and replace... more
