Looking for authentic Indian "sweets" and grocery in the Markham area

BDD888 Sep 23, 2013 11:04 AM

Can some one name some good Indian desert shops in the Markham area (or Scarborough, North York...etc....GTA). I think there was a Sri Lankan shop by McNicol just south of Victoria Park. Don't know if they're still around.

How about some good grocery shops as well in the same areas?

I know the Fresh Co on Major Mackenzie/Leslie is very multicultural catering to a wide number of ethnicities. But there must be others. Love to hear from Indian-Canadians.

    Mistaan sweets @ McNicoll Ave at Harold Evans Cres is where I go.

      There is (was) a Golden Grocers in the strip mall at Markham & 16th. They have all the standard indian grocery items.
      They also have a sweets counter inside the shop.

      A take out place called Babu's has a couple of locations and carries a fair variety of ready sweets but no groceries. http://www.babudelivery.ca/

      I am positive these two will provide almost anything you want, but there are numerous others (just never needed to search them out)

        Mistaan is usually the one recommended. I prefer babu for selection. And samosa king (?) it's the catering, takeout place at middle field and finch.
