In Vancouver BC, you find organic products in supermarkets and in health food stores. Certified organic products are often mixed with some products that are more or less natural.
Organic products are labeled “certified organic” with the name of the certification body but there is no official organic logo.
Vancouver is sprawling and health food stores are difficult to locate when you don’t know the city so I have had the idea to share here my good shops to get organic products. Below are a map followed by a list of health food store in Vancouver classified by neighbourhood:

Other places where you can find organic food
You can find local products in Granville Market that is Vancouver’s market. There is in particular a stall called Organic Acres Market that sells organic fruits and vegetables .
In the summer, some local producers sell their products in several farmers markets.
This guide is not exhaustive. I have just written down the shops I know. Feel free to share your organic good shops in Vancouver too in the comments section.
