Where can I find smoked paprika in Calgary? hopefully some place in the sw quartant of the city. I have several recipes asking for it, so far I checked the Polish deli and they never heard of it!!

      and the Cookbook Co. also has a stall at the Calgary Farmer's Market, and they carry it there too, sometimes they are out at the 10th Ave location. I'm Hungarian so I have to send boxes of it home.

            I can give you the name and tel.no. of a wonderful little shop in Montreal's Atwater Market(I don't know if they have e-mail, but they do speak English). They do have Spanish Paprika(I've bought it there). It is: Douceurs du Marche, Tel 514 939 3902.
            Give them a try, they will likely ship to you via Canada Post, let us know!

              Try Sunterra - they actually show it online for shopping, so I'm assuming they'd have some at their store in the SW as well.

              Not sure if you have any spanish sources in Calgary, but smoked paprika is often called pimenton, so if you know of a spanish market, check there.

              Here's one online American source I found...don't know if you might have better luck finding a similar source in Canada:
