Fresh bay leaves

Is this widely available? I have a recipe that calls for this but I do not recall ever having seen this with the other fresh herbs. Let me know where you have seen it lately.

      I have bought them at JTM but it might still be a little early

    2. I've purchased them at IGA, they were with the other packaged fresh herbs in the produce section. Don't remember which one I bought them from, but I've seen them at multiple locations.

        Glad to hear they're easily available. I guess I need to pay attention more.

          just saw some at PA Supermarche on Parc

      2. Can anyone let me know where to get a large amount of bay leaves for not too much $? Dried? We need them whole, and lots of them, preferably pungent! :)

          I get my dry bay leaves in bulk from Akhavan. Their turnover is great, and price very reasonable.

            I just got back from IGA on de Salaberry and there were loads of fresh bay leaves. Near the prepackaged fresh herbs.
