Went through Kensington and Chinatown but could only find a baggy of sad crushed dried leaves... where can I get fresh curry leaves?

    At the Indian grocers on Gerrard St.

      I usually pick mine up at BJ Supermarket, 1449 Gerrard E.

        i eventually did pick them up at BJ's. A big bag for super cheap. I keep them in the freezer.

        If you live uptown, I got it once at the indian store in Peanut Plaza (go north on Don Mills, just past Fairview Mall).

          Any other ideas of where to find fresh curry leaves other than gerrard? is this something i can find overpriced at whole foods?

          Ideally looking for something midtown/downtown toronto or west-ish around dufferin.

            I doubt you will find it at Whole Foods. You will find it at any Indian grocery.

              Yup, no luck at Whole Foods. I figured it was worth a shot while I was down there since they randomly have specialty "ethnic" produce.

              I ended up getting the curry leaves for 99cents for a big bag at Peanut Plaza.
