A plague in supermarkets. I know you can find local garlic in JTM and such, but...
List any chain grocery store that actually carries flavorful garlic, for the love of stench.
Why chains? Never a bad thing to avoid them...
Most health/organic food store will have garlic that is not from China. Some from Argentina, some will still have Québec garlic.
It's a bit late to get local garlic.
Mark your calendar for the next crop, august.
I HIGHLY recommend garlic from Le Petit Mas http://lepetitmas.ca/
I ordered 10 kilos last time, to save on shipping fees (fixed 20$).
I sold kilos to family members and friends.
Everyone is super satisfied and will order again next autumn.
It is not too late to get local garlic. Atwater (and I would assume Jean Talon) have them in braids - I just bought some a few weeks ago when my supply from the fall ran out. The flavour is far superior to anything coming from China. Forget chain grocery stores for garlic at this time of year - even when in season, it's hard to find Quebec garlic at places like Loblaws.
