Where to Buy Cane Syrup?

I have a recipe that asks for sugar cane syrup but I don't know where to find it. I checked my local Whole Foods (although it's one of the smaller ones) and they don't have it.

    We buy it mail-order.

      Thanks, Robert.
      I always put in an order with my dad for Steens when he visits. Maybe I should have him bring a case for the rest of the 'houds! :-)

        You can sub with corn syrup, except corn syrup is not as sweet.

    2. Every Chinese grocery store around Broadway in Oakland carries the cane syrup - that's where I get mine.

        I have been to Marina and didn't see any cane syrup there. Maybe this is limited to only certain stores?

      2. The Lucky's store on 'A' Street in Hayward has carried products from Steen's, including the cane syrup and sorghum. As others have stated, its not that hard to find.

        1. Try any Andronico's store (Berkeley, Palo Alto, San Francisco) or Mollie Stones' store. Also, most larger Safeway's should have it. Tate & Lyle is a popular brand. Also in SF try Cal Mart. Berkely Bowl should have as well. The more upscale the store the more likely they will have cane syrup.
