Delicata squash

I'm having trouble finding delicata squash in the Phoenix area. Found a grand total of TWO at the Whole Foods at Shea & Tatum a couple of weeks ago, and was hoping to roast some for Thanksgiving but have been unable to find more. Anyone know where I can get some (hopefully tomorrow, but just in general as well)?

I live in Central Phoenix but will be traveling to east Mesa (via the 60) tomorrow so anywhere in that range would be helpful.

      AJ's! I always forget AJ's exists unless I'm driving by one. Excellent suggestion, thanks.

        Your memory loss is undoubtedly good for your pocketbook.

          Ha, yes, I think you're probably right.

          Alas, the AJ's at Val Vista & the 60 let me down (I did get some Cock & Bull ginger beer for making Moscow Mules, tho') but the Whole Foods at Rural south of the 60 came through. Hooray! We'll be having roasted delicata for Thanksgiving after all!
