Trying to find Berbere spice in edmonton...

Does anyone know where i can find this spice? Its like a unicorn. I've been to supermarkets galore and 2 spice markets and no luck so far.

I've made my own from a recipe i found online but i would like to compare it to the real deal.

If anyone has a hot tip on where i might be able to locate it in edmonton and the surrounding areas ii would appreciate it!

    I wish I knew too. Best I can recommend is mail order from Seasoned Pioneers in the UK, though there is probably someone else doing it mail order too.

        Arada grocery on 107 ave is Ethiopian, I think. Give them a call and see if they have it.

          Silk Road has it, and you can order online. They are based in Calgary . I have quite a few of their spices and they are very good quality:

            Arada Grocery ended up having it. Got a very large container of it for 8 bucks. Not bad! Thanks Everyone!
