Good source for plenty of Spaghetti Squash? SEA or Eastside

So I'll be low-carbing it for a few months for my new year's resolution and plan on eating tons of spaghetti squash...Typically I spend about $8 - $9 a squash which makes it a little bit cost prohibitive. Any ideas on where I can get cheap and plentiful spaghetti squash?

      You mean it's cheaper to buy spaghetti squash at Pike Place Market than it is to buy it at Safeway? This would be great!

        I think she means it's cheaper to buy it at a farmer's market. Pike's place is way over priced, imho. It's the wrong time of year for spaghetti squash anyway. During the season, you can get a whole squash at Carpinito Brothers in Kent for about a dollar, and when they shut down for the winter, they put all their hard shelled squash into a big bin with a "FREE" sign on it. I go there for most of my veggies.

        the farmers markets are also cheap

        If you want to low carb it, you can also try asian bean thread for almost the same experience.

        It's like a dollar for a dehydrated bag at Uwajimaya's, and cheaper at Ranch.
