I was wondering if anybody knew where they sell Honey sticks(its honey which is filled in a straw) in GTA.

Thanks in advance

    They had them at our local farmers market (East Lynn) all summer long, but that's closed now. I bought a bunch in different flavours, very nice.

    I would think the same honey guy is at the Riverdale Tuesday market but that too will close end of the month.

    If I see any in my travels I'll let you know. Going to the Brickworks tomorrow, maybe they're there.

      Yes, the honey guy at the brickworks sells them (though I'm not sure if he's there every week).

        The East Lynn Market is actually still going until the end of October (Thursday Oct 28th). They had honey sticks there today.

        I believe David's Tea sells these in a few different flavours (as well as agave) but I haven't been there in several months.

          Confirmed sighting at The Brickworks this morning. Saw 2 different flavours available.

          I think this place must have them, or else they'd be able to get them: http://honeyworld.ca/

          They're in SLM, apparently, but I've never been to their booth there... They have a storefront in a half-dead, really unlikely strip mall at Browns Line and Evans in Etobicoke. I drove by it a million times, always wanting to stop but never having time, wondering every time how the hell a store selling only honey can possibly survive for two years while every store adjacent to it has failed multiple times. Well, finally went in, and it is indeed a... world of honey. Mostly NZ, but there's stuff from all over the world, plus health type stuff like bee pollen and so forth. Super nice old lady. She'll let you taste test things, too. Try the rosemary!

              Is that the strip mall across from Claudia's Donuts?

                Think so. It had a Miracle Mart as the anchor store about 20 years ago, then it fell into a general state of disrepair, and now there finally seems to be an Asian grocery store in there, though I haven't checked it out yet.

              I was shopping at David's Tea this morning, and look what I spotted :-)
              In addition to these 5, there are 5 other flavours that you can order!
