snow apples/ fameuse near Kingston?

I would love to buy some snow apples(also called fameuse) or cox's orange pippins. The apples I bought at the Kingston farmer's market that were supposed to be cox's orange pippins were fakes. Anyone know of a place to get these types within an hour of Kingston?

  1. Snow is an early apple and like other earlies, it is a poor keeper. So it is far too late in the season for them.

    Cox's Orange is delicious, but I think that climate is important to its quality. They are delicious from the Annapolis valley, but indifferent for me when I grew them in Toronto. But my experience in Toronto is limited.
