Any sources for good quality, fresh tomatillos available in the downtown core lately?

    The two latin-american markets in Kensington Market generally have them available.

        A veggie place on the lower level of the South St. Lawrence Market also sometimes carries them. It's the one in the middle, across from the Chinese Deli. When they have them they are next to the chili peppers.

          Kensington is definitely the place to go...you will find them there for sure.

          I think Whole Foods carries them as well but the cost is likely a whole lot more!

            Loblaws at Bathurst/St. Clair has them, which leads me to believe that they're likely also available at ( mid-town) grocery stores - Metro, Sobeys, Fiesta Farms, etc. I buy them all the time at Loblaws. (All year round I might add, which is not exactly 100 mile diet.)

            Kensington and SLM are usually dependable sources. FYI, they're not impossible to grow if you have a bit of sunny real estate.
