A food blog with a Pharmacy entry?
Yes, it sounds like a miss-post, but you need to know about this store.
Jubilee Pharmacy has two locations - one kitty-corner from the Jubilee Hospital (that one you could see coming, I'm sure) and the brand-new, second location on Johnson Street at Quadra. If you're now performing a mental Google Map - this location used to house a rotating array of carpet vendors (and Fabricland, way back when). The rugs are gone, the reno's are done and the food is here.
The second location?...
You can waltz through the aisles now AND still get the great selection and bargains.
What are you going to find at the Jubilee Pharmacy? A great product selection that's hard to pigeon hole. They don't specialize in any one area (gluten-free, all-natural, island-made) but cover all these bases - and quite decently too. From Bob's Red Mill Cereals to Raincoast Trading sustainable canned fish to Italian jarred tomatoes to Dan-D-Pack Cashews (at less than $0.99/100g recently) to Blue Sky soda (best price in town). And a few thousand other products in between.
Here's a quick shot of the baking (and more) aisle and the sundry aisle (toys, dish clothes, kitchen gadgets).
Oh - and the cutest grocery carts.

There's also a cafe inside Jubilee complete with delicious looking treats (and sandwiches made daily at the store) and lots of seating (which makes me wish I worked near there for mid-day coffee breaks)
You really should check this place out - no one I've sent there has been disappointed.
