Is frozen edamame (soybeans) available in the greater Montreal area? Can it be found in the West Island anywhere?

Thx!

    Pretty certain that it's available at Myamoto ( on Victoria ) in Westmount.

    and at most Asian supermarket.

      Also at Fruits du Parc, inside the mall on Du Parc at Prince Arthur (where Cinema du Parc is also located)

        You should be able to find it at Loblaws, in the freezer section (or in the natural foods freezer section).

        1. I know this thread has been dry for a while, but I know how frustrating it can be to look for Edamame in big cities (I spent months trying to find it in London). So, in case anybody looks up this thread, I just wanted to add two more sources:

          - There's an Asian supermarket that supplies good, cheap (got 2 packs for $3) frozen edamame, immediately to the right of the Play It Again Sports on Decarie, just below of Sherbrooke.
          - Costco (if you have membership) offers Edamame as a box of about 12 single-serve packs. It's mighty convenient, but at the same time, I didn't find it as flavourful as other frozen Edamame.

            Well by now it's actually pretty easy to find. It's in every natural food stores.

            1. re: Glaff

              Yes, it's pretty easy now.
              Adonis, Marche Hawaii, Asian groceries, natural food stores, Costco and i bet a few IGAs and Metro have them.

              The Korean grocer on Sherbrooke in NDG, across from Akhavan, has some in its freezers.

              1. re: Habs

                Loblaws has their own President's Choice shelled edamame, in bags in the freezer section with the rest of the veggies. They are pretty good.

                  Edamame is the new hummus.

                  1. re: SnackHappy

                    I'm not sure why it's practically never on offer in suhi restos here. It was a standard appetizer in all sushi places I went to in the US.

                    If you have a veggie garden, I can confirm by experience that edemame is very easy to grow, and plants are very productive. Just 4 or 5 plants will provide you with a very nice bounty, and the freshly picked beans is infinitely superior to any frozen product that I've tried.
