Tomato bushels in Toronto

I'm planning my first tomato preserve weekend this Saturday... and am looking for bushels of Roma/San Marzano tomatoes. Am located in DT Toronto, but am willing to drive to get them.. Looking for about 5 bushels.
Any suggestions?

      anyone know if fiesta farms has them this year? i live right by there!

    2. I think your a little late but try Longo's or Lady York on Dufferin south of Lawrence

      Dufferin Cafe
      2917 Dufferin St, Toronto, ON M6B3S7, CA

      1. I'm not sure how far you're willing to drive but I got 3 bushels of Romas from a place on Keele just north of the 401(west side). I made my sauce this past weekend. The tomatoes we very fresh. Excellent yield.

          Galati Brothers probably?
          They're on the southwest corner of Keele/Wilson, just north of the 401.

          We were lucky as we picked our own romas in Sarnia last week for $5/bushel. Was alot of fun.

            I think greatbigcat is thinking of the little hole in the wall produce place a couple of blocks further up Keele, because that Galati Brothers turned into an Asian grocer a few months back.

              Wow, that's surprising....Galati had been there for yearsssss

        2. There is a place on Davenport, West of Lansdowne on the south side that sells then for $15 the bushel

            The place on Davenport you're probably referring to is Joe's Garden Centre.

              There is also a place on Caledonia just slightly north of Davenport right near Macedo escapes me but it's a 'garden centre' (and a good one at that) on the west side of the street.
