Which reminds me. Where's that method that Siouxie posted?
Is that something other than butter on a scone?

Absolutely disgraceful.

Butter's nice, but come on, clotted cream ?! How can you say no to that.

I've got to more careful shopping, doctors says wife needs to eat low glycemic foods, so have to find a cook book as I follow recipes better then trying to pick and choose in the store....

Are there online grocery options?
Looking at good quality fresh produce, with other household and pantry items, free delivery? same day service? reasonable pricing to in store pickup?

Depends where you are in Canada, some regions have different options. In BC in Vancouver region, Save On does delivery and in store pick up now with online ordering, and you can order pretty much anything they sell online and have it delivered for the same cost as buying in store.

There is also spud.ca for the wealthier shoppers looking for over priced organics, they are more geared towards the urban resident who doesn't buy a massive amount of food at once, but the prices are insanely high even by Canadian standards.

Looking to relocate to Toronto (not sure of area within yet but will be fairly central). Was looking forward to more fresh salmon? or is this more area dependent?

I am not sure about ON, but I am right on the coast and the stores here sell mostly thawed previously frozen salmon, I am sure if one went to a proper sea food market, might find more fresh stuff. Grocery stores don't tend to have the best selection of sea food in my area, not sure about other regions.

Well in Toronto you can't just amble down to the harbour and buy salmon caught in the past few hours. There are salmon in Lake Ontario but I doubt you'd want to eat it. For Atlantic salmon it's about 1,000 miles to the coast and about 2,500 miles for Pacific Salmon, so fresh-not so much.

St Lawrence market has some nice-looking fish, as do other neighbourhood markets/fishmongers.

Either way, you'll be umpteen (under-estimate) miles from the source of any commercial sales of "fresh" salmon catch.
