Where To Find Jicama?

  • x

Does anyone know where you can buy Jicama in Toronto? I tried the Big Carrot last weekend and they don't sell it. Has anyone seen it around town? Thanks in advance!

      I've frequently seen it at the bigger Loblaws Markets.

          Any particular Loblaws locations?

        2. Highland Farms always has Jicama. A good place to buy it is at a fruit store on bathurst , north of glencairn on the east side.... sorry I don't know the name, but the jicama there is always excellent.

            You can get them in any chinese store in China Town, and it is half price compare to all the big store they were recommanded

              I joined to ask this question, then saw I'm restarting a 4 year old thread ... oh well

              >> get them in any chinese store in China Town,

              What do I ask for - I've asked for help in a couple of those stores a bunch of times & few of them understand me ((lived on Baldwin near the LCBO, shopped in Chinatown there all the time, always had to find the stuff myself)

                I have found jicama at the sobey's on Bloor in the Annex.

                1. re: odysseus

                  Longo's always has jicama. My Loblaw's sometimes has jicama.

                  As for what to ask for in a Chinese market -- your best bet is to show a photo (either on your phone or print one from online).

              2. You can get them at T & T and most chinese supermarket.
