I'm doing my annual canning weekend. Has anyone seen good deals on bushels of plum or roma tomatoes in downtown Toronto?

  1. There are almost none about. Longos had $15 bushels this morning but they had gone by 10 o'clock. Colangelos had San Marzano. but they've disappeared. If I were you I would phone round rather then trek. This is the voice of two weeks of abortive experience.

    1. I'm on the hunt too. San Marzano would be great. I don't like the round ones. I would even be willing to go to Kitchener and make a day trip out of it.

        I'm told it was a poor growing season and that they may finish early. Highland farms had Roma's for 15/bushel two weeks ago, and now they are 20.

      2. St. Lawrence Market should have some. That's where I've had luck in the past.

        1. Try Joe's Garden Centre on Davenport just west of Symington. I live in the area and saw yesterday that they still had lots. Also lots of peppers, fava beans, wine grapes, etc.

          1. Got two bushels of San Marzano from Longos yesterday morning - $15. Colangelo had some more at $22. All Longo's were gone by 11 o'clock.
