Canada: Toronto gets a vegan grocery store
Good Rebel is Toronto’s 100% all-vegan grocery store. Near Dundas and Brock, it’s recognizable from the large V in a circle that adorns the white brick front of the building, kind of like the symbol seen on menus and on products in stores.
Owners Mercedes Featherby and Mohseen Akbarali aren’t out to make anyone feel bad about the fried chicken sandwich they just ate, but are totally there for you when you want to follow up with something meatless to make for dinner. A lot of products imitate non-vegan process, emphasizing the way you can still enjoy all your favourite flavours as a vegan.
The space is super bright, friendly, comfy and spacious, with lots of room to amble among their intriguing products. There’s a sort of recharging area at the front with free water and a cute rocking chair. Little plants dot the store, including ingenious meat grinders made into planters.
Not only are they vegan, but a lot of products are local, too, like this simulated meat that King’s Cafe in Kensington serves and also retails. Their chicken leg ($8.25) has an actual bamboo drumstick “bone” inside and a rice paper coating “skin” that tears like it would on a real chicken leg.
They have a smaller range of home products than groceries, but do carry some essentials like Attitude laundry detergent, as well as vegan condoms (news flash: most condoms aren’t vegan) from Glyde ($19.4) and floss that doesn’t use beeswax (Radius, $5.50).
