Metro Inc., meanwhile, has reopened 5 Saisons, a gourmet foods store, in a new condo building.

To reflect current trends, the new store offers fresh-cut organic fruits and vegetables and fresh juices and smoothies prepared in-store, said Rene St-Louis, Metro’s director of produce merchandising.

Baby vegetables, such as cauliflower, beans, different colors of baby carrots and zucchini, are hot, St-Louis said. The mini vegetables are also offered in prepared side dishes.

He said the new store offers a wider selection of vegetables than regular Metro stores, from six types of eggplant to an array of fresh and dried mushrooms, including imported truffles.

All the produce in 5 Saisons is displayed using as few bags and trays as possible, he said.
