Fresh nopales?

Hi everyone!

I was wondering if anyone knew where you can find fresh nopales in Montreal. If need be, I can travel to Laval or parts of the south shore for it. I have seen canned, but never fresh.

Thanks for the help!

  1. They will pop up in latino grocery stores, once in a while, but I don't think there's a place that has the year-round. You might also see them in places like Sami Fruits.

    Your best bet is to call and ask if they have them. I would start with Sabor Latino and go from there.

    1. Saw them last week (and pretty much everytime I go) at Sabor Latino, so no need to call I'd say.
