Where to find agave nectar in Montreal?

I've tried every supermarket where I live and I can't find any place that sells it. It's a bit frustrating because I went to Toronto for a visit and there they have it everywhere. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

    Where do you live?

    Have you tried all the health-food stores? i.e. Fleur Sauvage, Rachel Berry, Tao, A votre santé, Loblaws health-food section, etc.?

      I live in Deux-Montagnes but I work in downtown Montreal. I have checked IGA, Loblaws and Metro and they don't have it.

      I have found some at Fleur Sauvage on Monkland in NDG... one jar cost me close to 10$. I was working on a quinine based tonic project (turned out really nice too)

      Fleur Sauvage is allied with Ambrosia downtown, another health food store, so it's likely they would also have some.

        I know you can find it at Rachel Berry on the corner of Villeneuve and St. Laurent. Also: Try Provigo's organic section - I have found it there as well.

          I've seen agave syrup in healthy/organic stores and produce stores (fruiteries)... is that the same? For example you can find it at La Branche d'olivier in Verdun, a short walk from the De L'église metro.

          I have been able to get it quite frequently in the organic section of Loblaws on Angus and also at the IGA in Complex Desjardins. Its not always there though, so I have taken to the habit of stocking up when I see it. Both places usually carry both the light and dark versions.

            Thanks so much! I work across from Place du Canada so I will make the trek to the IGA at Complex Desjardins.

            I found some at the Loblaws in Lasalle - Organic section.
