Default Where’s the Vegemite?

My wife (I know, I don’t have a cute nickname for her yet) and I have finally moved here from Ohio. I’m originally from Australia. In the Cincinnati area we had one of the best international markets in the country, and I was able to get my fix of Vegemite.
Does anyone know anywhere around here (other than ordering on-line) that sells Vegemite?

World Market in Winter Garden carries Vegemite AND Marmite. That's the closest place, around 35 miles from Lady Lake (which is my side of the Villages).

Most of us only heard the word Vegemite listening to Men At Work.

Thanks OrangeBlossomBaby. I’d crawl 35 miles over broken glass for Vegemite. (I wouldn’t walk across the street for Marmite!). Looks like the occasional trip to Winter Garden is in order.
Is there any question this forum doesn’t have an answer to?

Publix used to carry it. Tell them and they may stock it on their shelves again if it’s not there.

Great idea ..... Publix carries a good selection of international foods. Walmart carries Tim Tams Australian chocolate cookie, expensive but very good.

So what village are you in and when's the open house ? I'm a Sandgroper who needs some Vegemite asap, lol! I'm in Cason Hammock.

I, too will be searching out this world market.

Save yourself the gas, just order Vegemite from Amazon and have it delivered within 24 hours!

You can order online from World Market and receive delivery within a few days. But a trip to the store might be fun- they carry a huge selection of international items.

Have you checked at Earth Fare and that other expensive healthy food store? Vegemite and Marmite are both made from brewer’s yeast extract, so they are natural products. Vegemite used to be also made in the U.S. and sold as Vegex. My mom added a little to casseroles for decades to increase the umami taste, though she didn’t know that was what it did.
