The top 5 Mexican grocery stores in Toronto

Mexican grocery stores in Toronto are purveyors of products like Salsa Sinaloa, Sidral Mundet, and cojita cheese that you can't find elsewhere. 

Here are my picks for the top Mexican grocery stores in Toronto. 

Tierra Azteca

The humblest of Mexican restaurants, this Bloorcourt fave has been slinging lamb tacos for years while running a market on the side. They sell an array of Mexican and Latin American products that can be hard to find around Toronto.


From tostada shells to adobo seasoning, cans of tomatillo and a massive array of drinks from all over Latin America, this little shop by Keele and Lawrence has everything. It's not just Mexican products, but that's their specialty. You can tell by the wide variety of Jarritos.

Perola Supermarket

This Kensington go-to is a favourite for a reason. There's no shortage of spices here and you'll find every pepper or chilli for your Mexican cooking needs. Their products cover all of Latin America, and although prices here can trend upwards, it's a mainstay for the local community.

Tienda Movil

The Latin-American grocery store on Woodbine offers imported snacks and grocery goodies, with products ranging from sweet-heat Mexican candy to taco and enchilada meal kits filled with ingredients to make your favourite classic dishes at home.

La Tortilleria Bloorcourt

This Mexican taco house and market boasts locations across the city. Shop in store or online for spices, corn husks, cojita cheese, nacho chops, tortillas and a lot more.
