SEEN IN VANCOUVER #415: New Grocery “Organic Acres” Opens At 3603 Main Street

You might recognize Vijay Ramcharitar and Elaine Simandl from your travels through the navel of Granville Island Public Market. It was there that, until recently, they ran a much smaller version of their new store, Organic Acres. The new location at 3603 Main (off 20th) gives them a bit more space to stretch and a lot more shelving to fill with everything from quick boxes of macaroni and cans of organic black beans to fair trade chocolate and crispy kale. It’s pretty great spot, so if you dig independent and locally owned neighbourhood businesses (yeah you do), then check it out for yourself.
