Places to buy dried strawberries?

Hey all,
I've been trying to find somewhere in Toronto that sells (preferably bulk supplies of) dried or freeze-dried or dehydrated strawberries. I've already tried Costco, and Bulk Barn says they've discontinued their sales. Any suggestions?

  1. Might be able to find them at St Lawrence Market - there are a couple of dry goods places downstairs. I know at least one of them (northwest corner) has a good variety of dried fruits. I haven't seen strawberries specifically (although I was never looking!)
    Good luck

      I've found them at the dry goods place right in the back, downstairs at St. Lawrence Market...

        I find the best ones at the place downstairs at St Lawrence Market.. they have the least added sugar in them and are the most dry.

        I've also found them at the health food stores and sidewalk dried bean stores at Kensington, but they are more sticky and wet and are much sweeter..

      2. I think that Johnvince foods up around Dufferin and Shepherd carries them

          Personally I would avoid JV, dehydrated items are soggy in that place. I saw them in December at Bulk Barn at Leslie/Lakeshore. You may wish to call them.

        2. Qi usually sells them in bulk - at least the one on Roncesvalles does. Not sure about the other locations.

          1. Ive seen various dried fruits at whole foods on avenue rd.

              Place at NW corner of SLM definitely has them.

                Yes they do. But I tried them once and thought they tasted weird, for lack of a better description.

              2. Try a place called Almost Perfect - they sell frozen foods of all sorts. Cheers
