sweet and smoked paprikas

Hello, I'm new to this board and I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to pick up sweet, smoked, hot paprikas in Montreal. I can't find them at any supermarkets

  1. I'll assume you're looking for Spanish paprika (pimentón). You can find it in most gourmet stores. And it's available at Olives & Épices in the Jean-Talon Market.

    If you told us which part of town you're in, perhaps local hounds could point you towards a source.

      All spanish and portuguese market will make you happy or in la vieille Europe on St-Laurent

      1. If you live in the NDG area, I know you can get little cans of smoked paprika at Akhavan's on Sherbrooke St at Grand

          I think you can also get some at the Maître Boucher on Monkland in NDG.

        2. I bought some at Milano's on St. Laurent in Little Italy next to Marche Jean Talon. They had the La Vera brand, which is considered by many to be the best. They offer 3 varieties of Spanish smoked paprika: sweet, bitterseet, hot. I think they were priced at 3.99 each.

            I've looked around and I think Milano definitely has the best price.

          2. You can also find at them at Le Vrac du Marche, Les douceurs du marche and pretty sure at the Fromagerie Atwater - all in the Atwater market - but probably priced higher than either Akhavan or Milano.
