In the midst of all the industrial buildings on N Fraser Way (just off of Marine Drive) is a little gem for dairy lovers. Avalon Dairy sells organic milk products right from the source so that means you cut out the middle men. What does that mean? Lower prices and fresher merchandise.
Grocery stores don’t carry their full line of products and usually carry only Avalon’s milk, but when you’re at the headquarters, you get the works. They sell everything from milk, butter, cheese, sour cream, yogurt, egg and ice cream. I promise you that their ice cream is just as good, if not better than gourmet ice cream parlors and with the added bonus of being organic. Avalon Dairy sells them by pints or scoops so I’ve always been able to treat myself to a cone every time I replenish the milk supply for my daughter. I’ve also heard their organic chocolate milk is to die for, but I have yet to try it. I’m almost afraid to try because I don’t want to start an addiction I can’t handle, especially when I’m lactose intolerant. However, judging by the glowing reviews on their chocolate milk, it might be worth the pain.
