Gluten free on Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto. Garden Milk Variety looks like an unlikely store to specialize in gluten-free food, but enter and you’re in for a nice surprise!
Garden Milk Variety looks like a typical variety store left over from another era. Such stores are still common on Roncesvalles and around Toronto. Finding such a store that specializes in gluten-free is not so common.The store is located at the corner of Geoffrey St. Outside are several paper posters with a long list of gluten free food that they sell – this is what attracted me in the first place.
So far I’ve bought gluten free cookies from them, as well as nuts to you cashew butter and a few other odds and ends. They have gluten free cookie and cake mixes, crackers and a whole slew of other products.
I was surprised to find that it is run by a Chinese couple. They are not celiac. This just goes to show how big the market for gluten free food is, and how much easier it is to buy food appropriate for a gluten allergy or celiac.
Although they do not appear to have a very big stock, do ask for help in finding what you want. If they don’t have it they may consider ordering it.
