Food Column: Grocery Store Exploration with Sarah Elton

Every Wednesday this month of September, our food columnist Sarah Elton will be in with a new series. It's called: "We are what we shop for." The series features the stories of four independent supermarkets across the GTA that cater to different cultures of food. Through these stories we hope to learn a little more about who we are as a city.

For Sarah's first installment, she visited Galleria Supermarket. It bills itself as the country's largest "ethnic grocer." They specialize in Korean foods, from rice to seaweed to antibiotic free pork cut for bulgogi to Ontario-grown Korean vegetables such as bracken. They have prepared foods to take home as well as a cafeteria. And they offer free classes including how to cook Korean food. Listen audio (runs 6:29)

You can find them at 865 York Mills Road and 7040 Yonge Street
