Bushel of reasonably priced Ontario red sheppard peppers - where to buy?

Just looking to do a big batch of roasted peppers. Not looking for typical bell peppers, as I find the sheppard peppers thinner and tastier. Preferably east end (I live at Woodbine & Danforth). Thanks!!
If you don't get a good rec for out your way, there's a couple places on Rogers Road near Dufferin (w of I believe) that sell them along with tomatoes. I've never bought the peppers but the tomatoes are always fine.
I love those peppers too and when the season gets going they are so cheap. An under-appreciated local product! I can't swear they will have bushels of these, but Maselli's (Donlands & Danforth) does get bushels of tomatoes for canning season. So you might want to inquire there or at Jerry's, which I don't know as well but seems to be a similar family-run Italian grocer. But in a month or so I think.
