Welcome to The Sweet Potato
We’re a full service natural and local food grocery store located in the heart of the Junction in Toronto’s West End.
We love good food and are dedicated to bringing you the very best in fresh, local and organic! That means only the very highest quality produce, meats, dairy, baked goods, bulk foods, and the yummy prepared dips, meals, and other delights we make fresh daily in our kitchen.
We sample and source amazing products to support your healthy lifestyles.

We are always bringing in new and exciting products to suit your needs, so check back with us!
If this is all new to you, we’re here to help! Ask our friendly staff in store or check out our recipes, food news, hot links and tips.

So What Makes us Different?
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before with health food types; “We are gluten-free, paleo vegans”, “We only listen to alternative music”, “We only wear vintage” and “We go tree planting every night after work, (but before yoga)”. Let’s be honest, most people in this biz are pretty passionate about what they do. We are all these things, but we strive to serve our customers and community in a real way. We make it a priority to choose and to know our local farmers and producers. We only carry products that seriously taste good without basing our decisions solely on how much chia seeds or goji berries are hidden in the latest brownie.
We can’t deny our love of food or desire to tread lightly on this earth, but we’re not here to save to world, we just want to make your lives a little bit sweeter!
Known for its moisturizing properties, hemp oil is the secret ingredient in this Canadian made line of shampoos and conditioners. We're amazed by how well it works at keeping our locks clean and fluffy. Sulphate free, paraben free, cruelty free, vegan, and all natural.
Okay... we were skeptical at first, too, but these shreds are the best thing to ever happen to vegan cheese. Stretch your dairy-free cooking to include pizza, nachos, mac'n'cheese, or just about anything else you'd want to be a little more gooey.
Delicious, velvety and versatile vegan alternatives to butter. Great on toast, but also excellent for cooking or baking. Non-GMO and trans-fat free. Available in Organic and Soy-Free
