Anyone know where I can find maple butter? I live in Richmond Hill, but I would be willing to travel and stock up if necessary! Thanks!

    Horton's Sugar Bush and Tree Farm in Vandorf (not far from you) sells maple spread but only when the sugar bush is open (mid-March to mid-April), In the meantime you might want to try Smokey Kettle Maple Company in Grimsby and find out who retails their maple spread. It's delicious.

      Check touristy spots -- they usually have an abundance of maple products (sorry, I can't think of an example other than the airport offhand).

        Canada's largest maple syrup festival is in Elmira, which is near K-W. Unfortunately, you missed this year's already... it was in the beginning of April :( I think if you go to the farmer's markets in K-W, you'll be able to find maple butter. If I was still living in the area, I'd check it out for you, but i'm almost 100% sure you'd be able to find it!

          Funny enough... I was at the market this afternoon and overheard some people taking about it. You can in fact get it at the St. Jacobs Market.

            There were some folks selling maple products at the Liberty Farmer's Market last year. I know they have maple butter - I bought some from them. Not sure if they'll be back this year, but the Liberty market starts in a couple of weeks.

              Thanks everyone! I guess my best bet will be the Liberty Farmer's market.

                Monks Chocolates in Grimsby carries the Smokey Kettle brand of maple spread. I must agree with dory it is delicious. I think they ship.

                  Hi, I am also looking for some maple butter. Do you know if it is still available at this time of the year and where I could find some? thanks! Preferably in the GTA.

                    Hi led2,
                    Purchased maple butter last Sat at the brickworks farmers market on Sat. morning. The vendor indicated that she would be there every week. Had excellent maple syrup and other maple syrup as well.

                    I was looking for some last month too as gifts. :) Went to this store in Eaton Center, which was recommended by this board when I was looking for some Canadian souvenir last year. Couldn't remember the name of it, but it's same level as the food court area.

                    Didn't get it from there though. Thinking I'd check around..ummpphh!! Almost couldn't find it anywhere else, until we went up for a drive to Niagara on the Lake. Found some in Maple Leaf Fudge shop. http://www.mapleleaffudge.com/ . Grabbed couple of them.

                    Few days ago, I strolled in to Hallmark/ Laura Secord on Bloor West and oddly enough, they have jars of maple butter on display!

                    I couldn't vouch for the taste or anything. Bought them for gifts. I think the ones in Eaton Center and Laura Secord are from same company/brand.
