Searching for Vegemite or Marmite in MSP

I am looking for places that have Vegemite or Marmite in the Twin Cities area. I have already checked Bylerly's in SLP and Kowalski's in S. Minneapolis, but no luck. If anyone has a good lead for where to find this yeasty spread, I would be grateful!

    Thank you kindly for your replies everyone! I was able to find Marmite at the Byerly's in Edina. Will continue the search for Vegemite.

      Vegemite is much harder to find. Off topic, but according to Wiki, Kraft is planning on introducing a new Vegemite flavor, as if Australians don't hate us enough already.

        I had never seen or heard of this product, so I wikied it and it sounds gross, but I like the little song:
        We're happy little Vegemites
        As bright as bright can be.
        We all enjoy our Vegemite
        For breakfast, lunch and tea.
        Our Mummies say we're growing stronger
        Every single week
        Because we love our Vegemite.
        We all adore our Vegemite.
        IT PUTS A ROSE IN EVERY CHEEK!
        We're growing stronger every week!

      When I lived in the Twin Cities, Byerly's carried Marmite. The trick was: don't look in the jams/jellies area, look in the yeast area.

      PS: When you visit St. Louis, be sure to visit The Missouri Marmite Museum.

        Byerly's in Edina has it. I bought it there recently.

          Brit's Pub on Nicollet Mall sells jars of that sort of thing, also.

            I've seen Vegemite and Marmite at Indian grocery stores here. You can try Patel Groceries on Central or TBS mart off of Portland Ave in Bloomington.

              Ooh! I forgot about TBS mart. I shop there lots, but (for obvious reasons) never for marmite or vegemite.

              They have Marmite at the midway Rainbow Foods, over in the ethnic foods section.

              I know I saw Marmite at Kowalski's in St. Paul about a year ago. I don' t know whether they still have it. Good luck!
