ISO Marmite

I tried a search but all I get are threads about a restaurant with Marmite in the name. I need to know where I can buy a jar of the stuff please.

  1. Try Hogg Hardware (514-934-4644 - temporarily relocated to Sherbrooke corner Vendome during renovations) or Bramble House (514-630-6363). Both have selections of UK imported foods.

    I think I might have also seen some in the imported-foods section of the Loblaws in NDG, but I might have imagined it. Maybe someone else can confirm.

      They sell it at that store in Marché Atwater which specializes in imported stuff.

      Also I once found it in the baking section (?) of PA on Du Fort.

      Mmmmmmm - Marmite. Ever tried it on toast with a soft boiled egg or two on the side?


    2. Fairmount Butcher's on St Laurent sells it (!), although they'd run out when I went in last week. The owner ordered it on the spot for me, so it should be in anytime soon. I've also seen it at La Vielle Europe.
      Can't live without it!

        I believe I've seen it at La Vieille Europe on St-Laurent as well. You can also find it at Fouvrac, (1451 avenue Laurier Est).

      2. you can buy at a store called EMY on Victoria Ave north of Van Horne it is $11 for the big jar..I use it all the time and this is the best price i have found..Atwater is about $3 more I think..enjoy!

        1. Most of the South Asian grocery stores stock Marmite in different size jars at reasonable prices. Singh Farms and Marche Victoria on Boul. des Sources in the West Island definitely have them, I get mine from Singh Farms the large jar (500 g.) at 16.99.

          Most of the groceries on Victoria in CDN and in the Jean Talon- L'acadie area should also stock it.

          1. We moved some posts about the general qualities of Marmite to the General Topics board here:


            Replies about where to get Marmite in Quebec are still on-topic for this thread here on the Quebec board.

              Thank you again all! I'll get some this weekend if I have time.

              1. re: Chocolatesa

                Easy to find. Have bought it at Loblaw's, IGA, Provigo and Metro stores.

            2. Wow, people like to make this so complicated, you can get the big jars of it at most Indian grocery stores around the city, (down on jean talon street, or jarry or the west island) or in small jars at european groceries like Chez Latina on Saint Viateur or La Vielle Europe on Saint Laurent.

              Anytime you are in search of it, it is usually carried in markets from any of the collonies (ie south african markets or indian markets).

              Hope that helps.

                Sorry to complicate matters krozzt ;-) but it's worth mentioning that la Vielle Europe only carries the teeny tiny little jars of Marmite, which I get through in no time at all! Bigger jars can be found at the Atwater Market location I mentioned above.

              2. Also (or originally, from what I've been told) known as vegemite in Oz, it can be found at the new Australian Tourtiere place on Parc above Mt-Royal.

                  Aussies and Brits could argue for hours about the differences between Marmite and Vegemite... I am not sure if there really are any, but it's good to know that the latter is also available here. Though it is not better. :p

                  1. re: titihood

                    the swiss have also something similar called "CENOVIS"

                    1. re: titihood

                      Tourtiere Australienne has both Vegemite and Marmite on the shelves now - the Marmite jar is significantly larger than the Vegemite jar. It is relatively expensive, imho

                  2. Has anyone else tried Maggi Sauce? Tastes like liquid Marmite!
