Hello!

I'm looking for fresh fava beans and know close to nothing about them. Are they in season? Where can I get some (Toronto)?

If it's difficult/impossible, what are my alternatives? Frozen or canned?

Thanks so much!

    I bought some at Fiesta Farms about 2 weeks ago that were good.

      I saw some Friday at Town and Country Market in Mississauga, a little Lebanese grocer. Suspect Highland Farms would have some.

          I don't know the season for fava beans, but they have them at Fiesta Farms, I believe.
