Can I buy Honey Mussels in TO?

I read about them in Toronto Life a while ago and I would love to try them. Can I get these in TO?

Any ideas?

    if you do manage to find them they will be expensive. when i used them last year they ran $7.95 a pound, and that was my cost from my seafood supplier at the restaurant. i don't know how much they would be retail, but they are definatly the best mussels ever. very large {they completely fill the shell when cooked, not much shrinkage}and mild with a nice sweetness. the shell is much thinner than a blue mussel too so you get more per pound with the honeys. good luck with the hunt

      You may wish to check out the following link where Honey Mussels are advertised. I'm not sure if they sell to the public as well as restaurants, but there is a Toronto contact phone number. Good luck!

        Fish Man up on Glen Cameron has it occasionally. They get it on selected days.

        The Butcher shop (I think that's the name.... the one with the gigantic cocktail shrimps on display) in downtown Oakville sometimes stocks it too. I ahd some 2 weeks ago, although 1/2 lb was left only.
