We stopped in to get a variety of items while we visited the city. They offer premade meals and a lot of bulk products. Service was ok and prices reasonable.

We always include a trip to Rainbow Grocery when in the city. The range of good value foodie and healthy goods is large. We like the ethos of this store, and enjoy supporting it.
