Honey in Calgary

Where is the best place to buy different kinds of honey? I'm looking for Greek and Ukranian honeys mostly but would love to know if there perhaps is a speciality store somewhere.

Thanks!

    Kalamata grocery on 11st and 15 ave or so SW has a decent selection of Greek honey.

      Thanks Sharonanne, I usually get my Attiki honey from them. Love that store!

      Funny, I just happened to be talking to a co-worker about this. I can't back this up as I've never seen or been, but she says that there is one provider at Crossroads Market that provides a nice selection of honey. Might be worth checking out.

        There's someone at the CFM too. I've been looking for Santorini honey which is flavored by wild thyme but have had no luck. If you come across something like that please let me know.

            Wild thyme isn't native to NA, so you'll have a tough time finding a local supplier for it.

              I was starting to get the idea it was an uncommon thing. I had hoped that the Greek market would carry Santorini honey but even they don't. Maybe I should go back to Santorini? hah!
