Persia Foods has recently taken over Tim’s Produce at West Broadway/MacDonald providing Kits residents with quality, often local produce and some exotic harder to find items at arguably the best prices in the ‘hood. For example, on my last trip I picked up 10 limes for $1 and local tomatoes for 0.69/lb. Not bad! Kitsilano is the fourth Persia Foods location in the Lower Mainland and if it is as reliable as the other locations, I will be spending a lot of time there.
Like many Kitsilano residents, I used to regularly make the trek down to Young Brothers to pick up discount produce. While the prices at Young Brothers are definitely good, it is no secret that they only accept cash and the place isn’t exactly spotless. Combine these issues with the fact maneuvering a stroller around the place is an Olympic sport, saving a few bucks just wasn’t usually worth it anymore.
Luckily Persia Foods solves these issues for me. They take all forms of payment, are the cleanest of all the produce stores I have visited in the neighbourhood, have exceptional prices and excellent customer service.
To offer a more useful blog post I compared prices of 10 items between Persia Foods and Young Brothers today. The result: they came out pretty much exactly the same. I suspect there will be price matching between the stores, at least for now.
