Streetside bulk

Walking around Toronto, I got to see something we don’t have in Providence—bulk foods on the street! This display was outside a little College Street market on the edge of Chinatown.

Toronto’s Kensington Market is full of natural food stores and produce markets. This photo was taken outside a shop on Baldwin Street at Augusta Avenue. The entire store is filled with bulk bins and their selection is quite impressive. I perused the small but well stocked space wide-eyed and smiley. Bulk white and dark chocolate bricks were displayed in bins that framed a peanut grinding machine. And oh my, they even had a bin of black quinoa, which I haven’t been able to find in bulk anywhere else. I wish there were shops like this in Providence—well in every city and town, really.
