Organic Herbs in Toronto or GTA? (Preferrably bulk)

Hi All,

I live in Thornhill (so the closer the better).
I'm looking for organic herbs (preferrably bulk) to blend together for tea.

Any Store recommendations?

I specifically need Licorice Root, Peppermint Leaves, Basil and Fennel

I really appreciate the help

  1. Not in bulk, but the Spice Trader on Queen West pretty much only carries organic herbs. They ship too if it's not convenient for you to go there. And they carry the herbs you're looking for.

    1. Whole Foods has bulk herbs, some are organic. They also carry many organic spices pre-packaged. You may have to go to a healthfood store for the licorice root though.

      1. You can try Noah's Natural Foods at 9121 Weston Road in Vaughan.

          1. I have found the best place to buy herbs in the city is called "Our Wellness". It's a little health food store near Yonge and Eglinton, just north of Erskine ave on the east side.

            I have bought herbs all over the city. I found this place goes through quite a lot of herbs, keeping them fresher then most. The prices are also the cheapest I have found.

            Just some food for thought.
