Tomato bushels in Toronto

cfmcgrath18 Sep 14, 2010 04:30 PM

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?

    I believe that Fiesta Farms garden centre still has them.

        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.

          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 Grapes..name escapes me but it's a 'garden centre' (and a good one at that) on the west side of the street.
