  1. I bought mine from the Spice trader on Queen.
    I believe you can get it at Boncheff as well.

      Try Boncheff. If not in stock they can likely source it. Great place for fresh herbs at considerable discounts.

    2. there is a health food store on in the north market at St Lawrence market. You can get it there... also I am pretty sure any health food store (ie. Noah's) will have it.

      1. I bought mine at Pusateri's Lawrence/Avenue Rd. store.

        1. Apple is correct: The health food store called "Vital Planet" has a great stock of some wonderful lavender flowers (as well as TONS of other herbs, some medicinal, some aromatherapy, etc.) that I have purchased and used. The quality they get is exceptional!!

          Small quaint store but tremendous selection for its size and extremely knowledgeable staff who ARE NOT snobs but friendly and pretty cool people in fact

            I'll second vital planet. They have a huge selction of hard to find spices...was the only place in Toronto I could find ground Orris Root (ground root of an iris). Staff know their stuff and are extremely friendly and helpful

          2. you can get lavender at most or any dominion, loblaws et al.
