where to get green almonds in Ontario

Just came back from SF where they cook with green almonds. Saw them at the Farmer's Market at the Ferry building and ate them at Flour+Water in the Mission. Absolutely delicious marinated in wine, salt and sugar.

Anyone see them here, I heard there are a few orchards that grow them in Ontario.

Thank-you all

    1. re: Kagemusha

      Arz Bakery on Lawrence E has them when they're in season.

    2. They've been at Highland Farms for a couple of weeks now.
      I like the idea of fresh, but my research suggests that older is better for flavour.
      Any one have good recipes or suggestions for this seasonal treat.
