  1. Maybe here in Vancouver-if it's not on the site give them a phone call and ask sometimes small online places don't list every single product.

    I'd order a dozen or so tubes to make it worthwhile though.

    Ship Canada Post only though no matter where you find it-courier companies charge the earth.

    1. Funny you should ask, i always stock up on it at Goats on Roof market in Coombs. Not far from you at all.....

      I don't know why tomato paste isn't generally marketed in this way in north america, it's so much more useful than having to crack a can when all you need is a small squeeze.

        Another thing you can do is freeze unused tomato paste in ice cube trays - 1 TSP per tray cell and then store the frozen cubes in a freezer bag and use as needed.

      2. i know this sounds weird, but i found some at the London Drugs in Abbotsford - you might want to check it out the next time you visit Nanaimo..

        1. Here, in Vancouver, I have found tomato paste in a tube at Save-On; which leads me to wonder whether the Overwaitea store in P.A. would be able to order for you...

          1. Coomb's Country Market carries it...if you ever make it to the other side of the Island.
