Where can I buy fresh lavendar in TO?

I'd like to buy some fresh lavendar for mixed drinks, but the chain grocery stores don't carry it. Neither does Whole Foods, last I checked. Would the St. Lawrence market have it? I'm sure I've seen it somewhere, but I can't remember where. Maybe it was Fresh & Wild.

  1. Fresh Ontario stock won't be available til late May/Early June. Try the florists but it's likely not going to be culinary grade.

    1. If I recall correctly, I remember buying the dried version in the bulk food place in the north SLM. I have also purchased it from RIchter's Herbs in Goodwood.

      Why do you need it fresh? I have used dried lavender in cooking with fantastic results.
