Freekeh in Toronto?

Can anyone think were I might be able to find Freekeh in Downtown Toronto? Preferably west end, but I don't mind a trek if I'm certain to score. Perhaps someone can direct me to a good Grocer focusing on Arab foods?

  1. Not in downtown Toronto (or west), but Arz in Scarborough is probably the best source of Middle Eastern (Arab) foods in the GTA and sells freekeh.

    Also, check out this thread. It might be more helpful.

    1909 Lawrence Ave E, Toronto, ON M1R, CA

      thanks toveggiegirl, I suspected that Lawrence east would be a sure bet - just hoping to find something a little more geographically convenient for me. But upon reviewing the other thread, it would appear that a drive is in the works for me. Much appreciated.

        You might want to give Ararat a call. They are on Avenue, north of Lawrence, if that is more convenient for you.

    2. I just remembered that I think I may have seen it sold at Bulk Barn as "greenwheat" (or some similar name). Some Bulk Barns are bettered stocked than others so it may be worth calling a few close to you.
