Where can I find Kamut and Buckwheat in Montreal?

omnomnomchocolat Dec 20, 2010 09:35 AM


I love adding whole grains to my salads and specially love buckwheat and kamut. I have been unable to find these in Montreal so far. Does anyone know where I can get them?

Thanks !

      you can find kasha/buckwheat in a small brown box in virtually any supermarket. check near dried beans and grains, or eastern european/russian/kosher sections. kamut's more a health food store thing....

        check the organic section for both of those, also check the kosher section for the buckwheat.
        when the holidays are over, i would suggest heading to frigo vert, they carry in bulk many grains at a low cost and if they do not carry it you can order it directly from the supplier from them and get it at a reduced price.

          I have tried my local IGA and Provigo. I have tried two of the stores at Jean Talon that sell whole grains, but no luck so far.
          I will check these stores out and revert back to you. Thank you for your replies !

            I'm pretty sure you can get those at any bulk or health food store and even in the health food sections of some big supermarkets. Vrac Merci, Frenco, Bio-Terre, Rachelle-Berry, Loblaws, IGA...
