View Full Version : Looking for a Few Items in Canada
10-02-2008, 09:27 AM
I am new to eating raw and am gathering things together as I try new recipes. A few things I can't find here is raw oats, raw pine nuts and a reasonably priced water distiller. Can any one help me out with those things, I have found tons in the States but by the time you pay for duty it is really costly to ship it up here.
Thanks ~ what a great site ~ so glad I found it!
check out mumm's seed company out of saskatchewan, they should have oat groats, maybe pinenuts too.
have you considered talking to the person who does the ordering at your local health food store? they are often eager to add a wanted item to their stock. sometimes they will even order a case lot of something for you if you'll buy it all, you could start a raw buying club where you live with friends who are also into it.
where in canada are you?

Just tried there Mumms doesn't have it either.
you may be able to order some things from toronto sprouts, they ship sprouting seeds. http://www.torontosprouts.com/Home.html
looks like you can get oats here too http://www.saltspringseeds.com/
i know the big carrot in toronto does mail out and they may have raw pinenuts and the rest of what you're looking for http://www.thebigcarrot.ca/
eternal abundance in vancouver (they have a location in toronto too) may be able to help you out as well even if it is just with information, you can find info about them on this site http://www.rawbc.org/raw_businesses.html
here are some fun things about each place i listed. toronto sprouts is a place i used to manage many years ago where i was first introduced to raw.
saltspring seeds is a place my littlest sister worked at when she was wwoofing across canada.
the carrot was started by shirley maclaine
eternal abundance is owned and operated by a lovely man named ralph who i know personally, he's a doll.
funny how the world gets smaller when you look at it from the perspective of a special interest isn't it? wow.
