You might find them in Ikea's food market.

I'll have to check. The Ikea in Ottawa (closest one) has been "under construction" as it is being made bigger (read that, huge!). I have been avoiding it because of the parking mess.

Why don't you just get wild rice from Ontario?

Because I like MN wild rice better; it is a lot cheaper in MN than it is here <g>, and I know the lakes where it grows.

I saw Andrew Zimmern on his TV show, "Bizarre Foods," collecting wild rice from a row boat on a reservation in Minnesota once. It looked very tedious.

It is--a friend of mine in HS had a license (permit). We went out on Cass Lake in MN and gathered wild rice...separating the chaff from the grain is even more work (I guess a fanning mill would've helped--we tossed it in large baskets in the air). And, to harvest on lakes where it is truly wild (not cultivated) you had to have "status" to get the permit. Don't know if it is still true. I am still partial to "wild" wild rice and not cultivated.

Bizarre? We ate it instead of potatoes...

And that is why it is so expensive in other areas. I can get it for $1.99/lb in MN. It is over that for 100 g here in SE Ontario. Having harvested it, I do have an appreciate for why it is so expensive. Ditto for maple syrup and morell mushrooms.
