Finding tomatoes for canning this late in the season?

Hi there - I want to try my hand at canning tomatoes. I bought all the jars but then got busy and haven't gotten around to it.
Does anyone know where I can get a bushel of roma tomatoes in Toronto? Preferably east of Yonge, Danforth and south and not east of the Beach.
Am I too late?
I drove my friend ALL over the east end last Sunday looking for them. No luck.
Another friend spotted them at Superstore in Grimsby for $4.50 a bushel ! (I know, too far)
They had them here last weekend.
Joes Garden Centre.
1923 Davenport Rd.
Toronto, Ontario M6N lC3
Good luck !
It's out of your area (but not too far), but they have them at Fiesta Gardens at Christie & Essex (just north of Bloor).
You might also want to try the farmers' markets - last week they were flooded with all manner of tomatoes. Riverdale is going on until 7pm today, and is right in your 'hood.
