Yes, I was saying Amazon has new ones, about 40 with shipping was the cheapest I saw. The ones with prime shipping at about 49.
However, if you check out thrift stores, salvation army and goodwill they show there all the time.

Thank you Sam, I will check out goodwill, thrift stores and yard sales.

From their website:

"Unfortunately you may not repair a broken baker. There is no food safe adhesive which will tolerate humidity and temperature required for cooking in the Romertopf."

Sadly I had assumed this but someone advised it can be done. I love my small Römertopf and was heartbroken when it split last week when I took it out of the oven and my bread collapsed sometime during baking 😪 But after searching high and low there is nothing safe to seal it with that I can find. Possibly you could use clay if you had access to the right kind but that's even questionable 😪

What type of Roaster? If it's a Romertopf type. Amazon and free shipping is a good bet.

Yes! It has Romertopf written all over it. I am trying to add a picture to my response but I can't seem to add it. Are you saying that I can find someone on Amazon to repair it?

I could be wrong, but I think Sam is saying ordering a new one with free shipping from Amazon is your best bet.

How sad. I know you can fix cracks with milk, but anything you use to put Humpty Dumpty back together would seep into your food. Maybe someone knows of a magical substance. If not, can you glue it together and plant herbs in it?
