Where to buy Sumac in Calgary

I am in desperate need of sumac and have visited both Somar and Westend Grocery which are both sadly closed.

Does anyone know of a Middle Eastern grocer that is currently open and operating in the south of Calgary that sells sumac?

Thanks in advance.

      Not the cheapest place to purchase but try Williams Sonoma.

        I was able to buy some at Cedars, and the gentleman behind the counter is extremely friendly and funny. A really nice place to explore. Thanks for the tip!

      2. I too feel the loss of Somar.

        Whenever I'm in the NE I go to Basha, it's a great store. They would have sumac most likely.

        1. Thanks everyone for your input. I will check out those places! Cheers!

          1. I got mine at Silk Road Spices in Ramsay.

            1. I am not sure of the name but there is a place near Willow Park in Forest Lawn that sells it.

              I believe it is just south of 17th Ave SE on 31st Street.

              Good luck!
