searching for locally grown garlic

lisa the librarian | May 17, 2008 05:08 PM

It seems that lately I can find only imported garlic (both the fresh bulbs and the crushed garlic in glass jars), and I don't mean at the local supermarkets such as Metro or Provigo, but also at the Jean Talon Market where I was hoping to find locally grown garlic but saw only garlic from China or Argentina. I am very concerned about the safety of food imported from China as I've heard so many horror stories in the news lately about their lack of quality control. Does anyone know where I might find locally grown (or at least grown in Canada) garlic year round and, also, does such a thing as organic garlic exist? thanks a bunch!
