Source for Marcona almonds?

Quick question: where to find Marcona almonds in the GTA, preferably midtown or thereabouts? My brief search today of Fiesta Farms and the Bathurst/St. Clair Loblaws was a bust. Bonus points for someplace with good turnover of stock.
Pimenton on Mount Pleasant usually has them
I got some a while ago at the Sobeys on Broadview (near the deli counter), they were mislabeled as something else and super cheap as a result, but I suspect they've been sold out for a while.
681 Mt Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S, CA
Longos (at least the Markham location) has them under their in-house brand of nuts, but they're already salted and roasted.
Thanks all, I appreciate it. I attended one of Bonnie Stern's last cooking classes, and wanted to make her Farro and Asparagus Salad. It's still good with plain almonds, but marcona almonds take it to the next level.
