Hello Cassie,

Where can one buy Gardein™ in Montréal?

I live near Jean-Talon Market, so ideally near here, Villeray, Petite-Patrie, Rosemont, Plateau/Mile-End, Outremont... or anywhere near a métro station or cyclable from my place.

All the IGA's actually carry it - Loblaw's too but it would mean cycling on the under pass - a bit sketch at times. I love the stuff. My salads in a bag just become way more willing and nutritious with them. Yves makes an equivalent with their beefless strips. Tastes the same. I live near the market too! :) Pretty cool, nice to meet you, fellow Montrealer.
