Does anyone know where you can buy whole allspice berries in Pickering and/or Toronto? Thanks!

    I would think you could find them in many places, but I know the Spice Trader on Queen West stocks them http://www.thespicetrader.ca/detail.a...

      i'm almost positive I've bought them at No Frills...look for one that has a larger "ethnic" section, and they should have it in larger plastic packs.

        Bulk Barn at the Loblaws on Leslie has them, probably the cheapest option.

            all of the bulk barns carry them in their spice sections, most no frills etc will carry them as well - as another poster stated look for a large Caribbean or international section in the store (bulk barn will definitely carry them though). There is a bulk barn on highway 2 across and just west of costco (south side of hwy 2)

              T Phat in Pickering has them. It is on Kingston rd near Brock (use to be knob hill farms many years ago). Jamaicans often call them pimento, so try to ask for all spice or pimento.
