  1. Cheese Boutique has it but, if you can get there, the Highland Farms in Mississauga generally has it in stock at a lower price.

      Readibly available at most Loblaws, Sobeys & Metro. You should not have trouble finind Maldon!

      1. re: Prok

        I'm pretty sure I've tried finding it at Metro and Sobeys - but I always seem to have to go to Whole Foods to get it.
        I use it as my everyday salt - I'm addicted!

    2. I believe Scheffler's in the St Lawrence Market carries it. I think I also saw it at the bulk store at the back of the basement in the SLM, but they didn't have it the last time I looked.

      1. hi all,

        okay - i will make a special trip to the neighbourhood loblaws and metro ... i generally avoid those stores like the plague (i prefer longos).

        thanks for the tips!

          Does your Longo's not sell it?

          I am pretty sure the newer Longo's have Maldon and a wide variety of other salts (they are on display in large glass containers, but there are smaller plastic container versions of them to actually buy).

          I think they sell Maldon salt at Costco too but don't quote me on that one.

          1. re: ylsf

            I haven't seen it at Costco; they have Gros sel Guerande, which is a good light crystal substitute, around $6.per kg.
            Boodah, I have looked for Maldon at the two east Toronto locations of Highland Farms but they haven't had it for 2 years. I guess I'll have to go to Longo's parking adventure on Leslie.

              Maldon salt is also available at Bruno's Meats in Pickering, Kingston Rd. and Rougemount. This salt is great as a finishing salt to up the presentation level a notch.

              I agree with the Gros sel Guerande that is available at Costco; great flavour for the price and my everyday salt.

              1. re: Dflip

                Thanks Dflip. I got it at Bruno's, 250g for $10.

                1. re: Dflip

                  thanks! i'm going to try the bruno's in etobicoke this week!

                  1. re: lilaki

                    I am pretty sure Bruno's in Pickering is independent. But Bruno's, the chain, may well have it.
                    Anyway, thanks for bringing this up. I saw Maldon for months on end at Highland Farms, $7. a box, on the meat counter. Then they didn't have it, and I regretted not buying!

                      oy! you're right! totally didn't catch 'bruno's meats' vs. 'bruno's'. oh well ... i'll give bruno's a try and see if i have any luck...

                      otherwise, the next closest place is the cheese boutique...

          2. I've always seen it in Pusateri's on Avenue Road-not in the baking section, but where they hold their collection of spices. I've also seen it a Whole Foods Market.

                I saw it at Loblaws at Dundas / Scarlett on Tuesday, in the spice aisle, on one of the lower shelves, next to the President Choice pink sea salt.

                1. re: lilaki

                  struck out at longos on ponytrail and metro in cloverdale ...

                  trying bruno's this week.
