      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.

        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.

          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.

            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.

                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.
