Old Bay Seasoning

Can I find any in town, or would I need to travel south of the Mason-Dixon line to get any?

  1. Don't know offhand and the McCormick product store locator only works for the US, but you could try contacting them directly to ask:

    1-800-632-5847, Monday - Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST
    contact form: http://www.mccormick.com/content.cfm?...

    You can also buy Old Bay in their online store in several incarnations: http://shop.mccormick.com

    Good luck!

    1. If you can't find it here. It looks pretty easy to mix yourself.

        I believe they sell it at Douceurs du Marche at the Atwater market.

      2. I've seen it in Montreal, although I haven't made note where I've seen it lately.

        1. My IGA carries it- so maybe you want to call the one in your neighbourhood and ask (mine is the one in the Cote st. Luc Shopping Center).

          1. Many fishmongers sell it, so check nearest you. I know that Nouveau Falero on Parc at Bernard sells it.

            1. I'd agree with the posters above, it is available here, but somewhat expensive, though. To get it cheaper, you don't have to travel to Dixie, as they have it at the Price Chopper in Champlain.
              If you do get to the Delmarva area, you can pick up a 1lb tin for real cheap!

                It is not expensive at all at the IGA. It's in with regular spices and Tandoori seasonings in the baking/spice aisle.

              2. As Spanky Horowitz points out, many fishmongers do keep it. In addition to Nouveau Falero, I have seen it at La Mer on Rene Levesque. I also think I've seen it at Anatol (the spice shop) on St. Laurent (but am not 100% certain memory is serving me correctly right now and it's too early to call them). Maybe also La Depense? A pricier bet, perhaps.

                1. I just posted my recipe for Shellfish Boil but I'm not computer literate enough to make a link to it in Moh's "Crayfish in Jean Talon Market" . Hope that helps if you can't find Old Bay here.
