Where to buy hominy in GTA?

Not grits - hominy is corn with the husk and germ removed, also known as samp.

I've tried Foodbasics, Walmart (plus international section), Nofrills, Superstore, Loblaws, Bulkbarn - no luck. Would prefer dried but would be okay with canned hominy.

  1. Lively Life fine foods on the lower level of the St. Lawrence Market sells hominy dried in bags and also in cans, in both yellow and white varieties.

    1. Have bought canned yellow and white from Highland Farms and NoFrills around Mississauga.

      1. Canned homily also available at Perola Market - 247 Augusta Ave in Kensington market. Other good Latin products there too.

        1. I've found this at Ajax & Whitby No Frills, FreshCo, Loblaws

          1. There's a fruit vendor at Bloor and Delaware (next to the Shoppers) that has both canned and dried hominy.
