Goji Berries (Toronto)

Where can I find some? Dried or not??
Looking in the downtown Toronto area only (south of Bloor, no further west of Bathurst or east of Yonge)
You can find them in Chinatown or Kensington or Whole Foods or Noah's or Fiesta Farms.
Keep in mind you get what you pay for so the more expensive ones are large and still a bit moist while the cheaper ones are smaller, harder and in my experience, darker in colour.
I like the ones in the glass jar near the cash register at the herbal store on the south side of Spadina. It's the first herbal store north of Asian Farm grocery store.
The organic grocery on Augusta that has all the organic flours and dried goods in glass jars (sorry, don't know the name) sells good ones too.
You'd probably find them in most places in Chinatown especially the herbal places (anyone with the dried goods out front). My mom's used them in soups since I could remember. Ya, just soak them.
