All Things Avocado

----------

Are you as obsessed with 'all things avocado' as we are?! Avocados have taken over and become a main stream symbol. Not only are they used in our fave appetizer (guac!), avocado toast and to provide all the 'good' fat we could ever want, they're being used in everything from greeting cards to skin oil.

In honour of National Avocado Day (July 31), we're showcasing 'all things avocado' from 8 Canadian shops.
