Where can I find black sesame seeds?

I've been looking for the past week and haven't seen it - only white sesame seeds. Anyone know where I can find black sesame seeds? Downtown/Danforth area preferred.

Thanks.

  1. I live in NoCal but just bought toasted black sesame seeds at an Asian market.

    1. I've found them in Little India.

        1. T and T has it...on Cherry. At least, the last time I went.

            Harvest Wagon at Yonge and Summerhill carries them.

          2. I found tham at Taro's Fish on Sheppard Ave East

            1. Kuro goma--black sesame seeds--are usually available at Korean grocers like PAT.

              1. Any chinese grocery store should have them.

                1. Spice Trader sells them.

                  1. You will sure get at India Town (Grocery Store) at Lawrence /Markham , next to Soon Lee store.

                    1. Is there a bulk barn near you? I have purchased mine at the Bulk Barn in Woodbridge.

                        1. Any Asian store, Big Carrot and Bulk Barn (where I buy mine)/

                          1. I found mine at a spice store in kensington market.

                            1. I'm pretty sure I saw them at Galleria, a Korean supermarket with several locations in T.O. Newest location, recently opened, at Yonge & Steeles in what used to be Chapters. Also, a fairly new location at Don Mills & Leslie.

                              1. I didn't read everyones reply, but here is mine, quickly, any chinese supermarket.
