I checked with a few places, and no one can ship seed potatoes to Canada. I found a few sources of potato seed (not seed potatoes!); they may or may not be able to ship there.

Snow Pond Farm Supply, in Belgrade, Maine (ph# 800-768-9998) sells seedfor one variety of potato, plus a large selection of seed potatoes, including fingerling and blue potatoes. The folks there also told me that there's a potato supplier in Eastern Canada (they didn't know exactly where)--the name of the company isBeck's. If you're near Belgrade, Maine, you might check with your department of agriculture to see if you can drive down to Snow Pond's store, and bring seed potatoes back into your country.

Burpee has a new yellow carrot but, unfortunately, they can't ship to Canada.

I believe Territorial Seed Co. has a branch in Canada. I didn't see any odd-colored carrots, but they do have the 'Peanut' variety and blue potatoes. You can reach them at 8475 Ontario St., Vancouver, BC Canada V5X 3E8. (Their web address is www.territorial-seed.com)

The only other company I know of with a branch in Canada is Stokes Seeds. You might visit their web site at www.stokeseeds.com


Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
