A new low-waste grocery store has opened in Toronto

Dec 13 2019, 3:38 pm

As 2019 comes to a close, it’s time to take stock of the past year’s successes, and what intentions we’d like to set for the 366 days ahead.

A major theme across the city this year has been sustainability. We’ve seen the opening of Toronto’s first brick-and-mortar zero-waste grocery store, and the announcement of another coming soon.

Now, quietly, the city has welcomed yet another low-waste grocer. And this one offers delivery.

Newly-opened Annex Market is currently running out of 718 Bathurst Street. The low-waste store offers an online catalogue that allows you to browse available items, and select them for pick-up on location or — if you’re in close enough proximity — delivery.

For now, the shop is open on weekdays from 4 pm to 6 pm, for you to stop in and grab your coffee beans, granola, maple syrup, dish soap, and more. All items are packaged in reusable glass jars, and are sourced from local and sustainable purveyors.

If you opt for the delivery option, you must be located south of Dupont, north of College, East of Christie and Grace, and West of Spadina. During the stores “beta-period” — while they continue to build out their concept store — delivery is free, and it’ll all be done by the shop’s founder, Corey Berman.

The concept shop is expected to officially open later this month.

At this time, delivery windows fall from 3 pm to 5 pm, 5 pm to 7 pm, and 7 pm to 9 pm from Monday to Friday.
