Where can I purchase a Sweet Potatoe pie in the city?

Please do not offer to make me one or my post may be removed again.
I'm happy to get my teeth into a piece of this historical pie.
There's Sweet Potato 'Pie' available in some of the Jamaican Food places in Kensington...it's really not a pie it's a 'pudding' ...very DENSE....When I think of sweet potato pie I generally think of a 'southern u.s. version'...not sure I have ever had that kind in Toronto. The Jamaican version is quite different I think it's an 'aquired' taste....every Bakery here in Ocho Rios sells it in pieces /small plastic baggies....give it a try if you find it in Kensington or Jamaican 'restaurants' around town....
I don't know the current status of her retail either. But I would contact them before heading there. They are unlikely to have something so obscure in stock regularly. They do special orders, but sweet potato also doesn't appear on their flavour list (I looked under custard pies, which is where pumpkin is listed). However, they may still be your best bet in the city if you are willing to order a whole pie.
You'll have to wait a few months for this recommendation but once Farmer's Market season starts again there is a farmer who sells only sweet potatoes and associated baking (muffins, tarts, pies). They have a booth at the East York and Nathan Phillips Square markets. They're called Round Plains Plantations.
Thanks for the info Hoagy294. I often travel by the East York farmer's market on Coxwell on Tuesdays on my way to work. Checking their baked goods line
I don't see pies on there. Have you seen them there personally?
I'm quite sure that PearlD will be happy to learn about these farmer's market exhibitors.

Hey thanks for thinking of me....BTW I had a small piece of sweet potato pudding from one of the bakery shops in town...it was just as I remembered......YUCK! (or as I said before..an aquired taste...)
This place you suggested sounds like something I would try for some of their other goodies when I get back to civilisation (as I remember it!)
