    Hi GatineauGirl,

    Are you still looking?

    Today, I just found nice Certified Organic Fresh Turmeric Root at Rainbow Foods (@ $46/kg), 1487 Richmond Rd., Ottawa 613-726-9200.

    Natural Food Pantry, 126 York, 613-241-6629, usually carries it but they're out of stock until next Tuesday, therefore, they couldn't give me a price today.

    No Gatineau store carry it unfortunately (I'm back into juicing again and I called everywhere).

    Hope this helps.

    Market Organics (formerly Natural Food Pantry), 126 York, 613-241-6629 sells the organic one at $27/kg. What a difference !! However, parking is NOT free on the Byward Market (parking meter is at least $3/hour). I know where I will buy it next time. Greycloud

    Thank you so much, Greycloud! I only just saw your comments today. I will try Rainbow....crazy parking lot, but at least it's free. (I wish parking/traffic was easier to navigate in the Market; same with Whole Foods in Lansdowne Park.) Enjoy your juicing!

    Bonjour GatineauGirl,

    Rainbow price is outrageous at $46 but in the beginning of my search I didn't know better.

    I forgot about this and forgot come back to mention that they now recently have certified organic fresh turmeric roots at La boîte à grains in Gatineau, and in Hull. It is $29,49 still today, I just called both of them.

    My Indian landlord told me she gets it cheaper (not certified organic, but produced in the Vancouver area apparently) in an ethnic shop near Merivale & Hunt Club. I will post the info when possible.

    Happy Juicing to you too !!!

    Forget about the other ethnic shop... just called them... only dry powder and dried whole... but ratings on 2 websites are horrible about all they have in there (expired & stale food and overall bad hygiene), so I wont even mention their name. Only a few excellent ratings which really sounds like they are totally fake. Always pay attention to cleanliness in food shops !

    I live near Merivale & Hunt Club and would also like to know where to buy the fresh turmeric. If you find the name of the store near there, please post. Thank you in advance!
