Where can I find some Hamantuschen?

Just dawned on me I need to get some this weekend.

Anybody know of a good spot?

    1. Bought some at Harbord Bakery today. Really good cookie-dough-type, fillings not sickeningly sweet.

      1. Dear millygirl:
        You can find Hamantashen at any Jewish Bakery on Bathurst St.
        They not a fundamental requirement for the observance of the celebration of Purim, however.
        The actual requirements that you must fulfill (if you are Jewish, of course) are (1) hear the reading of the Megillah (Book of Esther) at both daytime and nighttime. (2) eat a festive meal with family and friends. (3) send at least two different edibles to at least two fellow Jews, and (4) give charity to the poor.
        Happy Purim.

        1. Did you get a craving after watching Chopped this week?
          It was one of the mystery basket ingredients and I didn't know what it was initially, lol.
