    Whereabouts are you located? House of Spice in Kensington Market would be a good bet. I've bought mine at Bruno's on Avenue Rd.

      I know House of Spice has it - they even carry it in bulk packages. And it's very good stuff

      I recently bought some at Michangelo's in Mississauga, my favorite food store. I'm sure I've seen it in Longo's too so I would expect most of the better grocery stores will sell it. Look for a small, bright red, rectangular can in the spice sections. Ask if you don't see it because some stores merchandise specialty seasonings in a separate spot.
      Good luck Ribboy.

        Smoked paprika has become a mainstream item: McCormick's now has it in its lineup. I saw it at Lady York on Dufferin the other day.

          Chris's Cheese at SLM has the Spanish variety which I think is worth it just for the retro picture on the can.

            Royal Beef on the Danforth is where I got my last batch. 1968 Danforth, north side, between Coxwell and Woodbine. Go on Saturday morning and grab a fresh canoli :-)

              Um, Loblaws. I have bought it in both mild and "hot" (not really hot) versions from Queen's Quay, Redway, and Vic. Park Loblaws locations.

              Spanish Brand. Metal Tin. Red Label with Yellow Label. Bought my last tin on Saturday.

              Also, the store in the lower level of the St.LM often has it.

                Definitely mainstream now. The rectangular tin has great flavour, and there's another kind available in canisters that is available in mild and hot from any of the Alex Farm locations.

                  There are other brands but "La Chinata" in the red square tin is probably the most common. Keeping it in a cool place helps maintain freshness.

                    Does anyone know if you can buy smoked paprika in Peterborough?

                      I often see it at WInners. You never know what they're going to have, of course, but it's worth a shot.

                        This discussion is from 2008. Why is it being resurrected?

                          Awesome! A choice of 2 possibilities! How does it get any better than that?

                          I bought it at the Metro on College. First place I looked and there it was! My backup plan was the House of Spice in Kensington. It is such a great spice!
