Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows of a great Portuguese or European grocery that would sell the following ingredients anywhere in Calgary as I haven't been able to locate one:

Pimenta - a Portuguese seasoning that consists of crushed red peppers mixed with salt that is canned and seedless.

con Azafran - Sazon Goya is the brand and contains 8-10 packets of seasoning.

Thanks in advance,
Shannon

    I think the store beside Mimo (17th Ave SE, in Forest Lawn) sold some Portuguese products. My information could be old.

      Thanks very much. I'll try all those places. I did go to Lina's and Polcan and a couple of spice places and there was nothing.

      regards,

        I actually saw a lot of Goya products at, of all places, Giant Tiger. I saw the Sazon Goya packets of culantro and achiote (coriander and annatto), so they *may* carry the con Azafran.

          You might try the Atlantic Pacific Fish Market as they carry some Portuguese products. Also, some Italian places often carry Portuguese products, so you might also try The Italian Store (Scarpones) or the Italian Supermarket. I wouldn't bother with Linas though.
