Where to find agave nectar in Montreal?

PadmeSkywalker Sep 17, 2009 05:34 PM

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?

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

      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 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 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.

            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.
