    I saw some in Granville Island market yesterday, at the fruit stand next to the fudge shop & the washrooms.

      They were late this year, like so much of the earlier tree fruit. According to my produce rep, the Florida ones have just started to come in (I've been asking him about kumquats for weeks, just got some yesterday) and the California should be available in another week or so.

        Thanks, that makes sense - I found some really sad looking ones at T&T that were out of China and mostly green in colour. I picked some up at Granville Island that were also pretty green, but in better condition. I needed them for today otherwise I would wait for some better ones. Thanks for the info!
