Candied nuts in Montreal???

liquidrawhide Dec 9, 2010 08:18 AM

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a few good suggestions about places in downtown Montreal/West Island where I could find some delicious candied nuts for someone on my Christmas list. Walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts, whatever... the tastier the better.

Bonus points if they're produced locally and not pre-packaged by some out-of-province provider... I've found some interesting options but they're all made in Georgia.

    Is the nuts kiosk from Marché Jean-Talon still at Marché Atwater for the winter ? They're really the best. You can't go more local than this. They're are not packaged, you can buy them en vrac.

    There's also Sunsource... but it's not as good and fresh. There's one in Westmount : 4822 Sherbrooke west

        I love the maple pecans from the vendor at JT market. Also chocolate hazelnuts.
