      How were they packed, what size container and how much?
      I saw big cans on of lemons on a shelf in the kitchen area of a Morrocan restaurant - smoke easy on Danforth. they should be not to expensive. Maybe theywere brought in from Montrael.
      Try finding out who the distributor of "Cedar" products is.

        Canned seems unlikely for a citrus product. Glass jarred in various sizes is all I've ever seen. They're never giveaway priced.

      There's a new middle eastern grocery/take-out in Kensington. They're not on the shelf but just ask and they will sell their homemade ones to you individually.

        There's a Spanish/Moroccan specialty food place on Mt. Pleasant a couple of stores south of Soudan on the east side. I'm pretty sure you'd get them there.

          Store is called Pimenton and they definitely have preserved lemons, I was there on Saturday and there is a big jar of them on the shelf across from the cash.

            Thanks for providing the name, bytepusher. I haven't actually bought anything from them, but everything looks delicious.
