Does anybody know where to buy smoked paprika in the Toronto area?

  1. Smoked paprika, as in pimentón? It's available at Pasquale Brothers, on the side south of King Street East at Frederick Street (which is a block west of Sherbourne).

    Pasquale is also a good place to shop for things like tinned San Marzano tomatoes, olive oils and Calasparra rice, all at good prices.

    They keep inconvenient hours: 8 - 5 on Tuesdays to Fridays, and 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays (closed on Sundays and Mondays).

      Thanks for the lead. Is Pimenton a ground powder like regular paprika?

        Yup, Middydd, it's a ground powder, and it comes in a small tin, just like regular paprika.

          You can also get the Dean and Deluca brand of smoked paprika from Senses. And, in Yorkville, you can buy it in "bulk" from Dinah's Cupboard.

            Actually, that Senses you're thinking of closed in January. The new location at Wellington & Blue Jays Way has the restaurant and the bakery/take-out, but the retail section has been downsized, and no longer carries the Dean & Deluca spices, or much of anything other than some oils and vinegars.
