      I can tell you where NOT to get them - The Organic Boutique on Queen W. The owner told me I wasn't allowed to touch them unless I was buying. Ummm, ok.

      At fiesta farms or in my backyard.

        Can you give me the address the latter? Can't seem to find it on the net.

          I would share my personal stash but they are going into a boeuf bourguignon for my wife. One of her faves. Fiesta Farms has a much more abundant supply of the purple carrots.

        Definitely numerous places at the St. Lawrence Market. I also saw some at the Sobey's on Front St. East the other day, although they didn't look particularly fresh.

          I've seen them at Pusateri's on Church at Wellesley.

          I got some them this time last year at the Distillery District Farmer's Market. It runs on Sundays and is quite small. I would imagine you could get them at Harvest Wagon or McEwen's as well.

            I bought some last weekend at the St. Lawrence Market - purple, orange and a nice golden yellow. The stall was just outside the north building across the street from the main market.
