In this Mooncakes Toronto 2022 post, I cover some places where you can buy mooncakes locally from the classic to the unique flavours.
As summer fades away and the leaves turn brown, it’s that wonderful time of year to gather and give thanks under the Harvest moon.
Mid-Autumn Festival 2022 is a harvest festival celebrated in Chinese culture and some people compare it to North American Thanksgiving.
This year, Mid-Autumn Festival 2022 falls on Saturday, September 10, 2022.
The most iconic food associated with the Mid-Autumn festival is mooncake.
The mooncake is stuffed traditionally with red bean paste, fruit, egg yolk, nuts or lotus seed paste.
However, there have been more unique and creative fillings in modern times.
Its round shape symbolizes “unity” or “reunion” and best wishes.
In general, you can find mooncakes sold at Chinese bakeries and supermarkets.
From the traditional to the modern and unique, here are a few specific places to find Mooncakes Toronto 2022 for your Mid-Autumn Festival 2022 celebration.
