Ground Ceylon Cinnamon

Does anyone where I can buy true cinnamon in Montreal, preferably Mile-End area?

  1. I don't know about Ceylon cinnamon specifically, but most Latin-Amercian shop will have real cinnamon (canela). Otherwise the obvious answer would be Olives et Épices at JTM. They also sell their stuff at La Guilde Culinaire.

      I don't think Épices de cru (Olive et Épices) carries ground cinnamon though.

        I think you're right. They're too fancy for that stuff.

          If buying cinnamon in sticks is fancy, we live in a pretty sad world.

    2. Any health food store that have the products from this Québec company I buy mine at Rachelle Bery, but in the Mile-End you could find it at Bio-Terre... or use the store finder on the site, there's a few other places near your area.

      1. Try calling Spice Station's Mile End store:

        174A Bernard West
        (514) 274-1514

        1. There's a place called The Spice Station at 174 Bernard West that should have what you're looking for. Not sure if that counts as Outremont or the Mile End, but it's closer than the markets.

          Edit: Just realized this was posted directly above. Anyway... seconded!

            Thirded. This is where I would try.

          2. I bought some at Rachelle Bery. Everything I've read said it has a different nuance than what is mainstream cinnamon here. I can't tell the difference. Just me?

              maybe because it was ground eons ago.
