Toronto's Nuts

Yes? Hi!

Where is the best place in the Toronto to find the nuts that is not the Loblaws, Metro or Yonge\Dundas Square?

We were looking for the peanuts, almonds and the pistachios (even the salted and flavoured kind are the ok).

      go to Bulk Barn, they have lots of different nuts available, not to mention lots of spices and other ingredients!

      Although not very conveniently located, Johnvince has a great selection of nuts.

        I do remember a few years ago there was a place on Lawrence Ave E. between Victoria Park and Warden Ave. that was Middle Eastern and they specialized in various nuts. They were in a plaza on the north side. Sorry I can't recall their name, but their sign advertised that they specialized in nuts.

          You're thinking of Samara Roasted Nuts. Lawrence between Wexford Blvd and Pharmacy.

          There's a pretty good selection of bulk nuts at Domino's, which is located on the lower floor of the St. Lawrence Market way back in the north-west corner.

            My favourite place is Tutti Fruitti in Kensington Market. Very friendly owners at decent prices. I like their granola selection too! I find their nuts to be fresh, but their trail mix is hit or miss. They also carry dried blueberries, cherries, pineapple, and mango.
