Where to buy yellow zucchini in Toronto in April?

Does anyone know where fresh yellow zucchini (preferably local or heirloom-type) can be got in Toronto these days, particularly in the Scarborough/east end/north Toronto areas?

    Yellow zucchini are only local, to my knowledge--unless someone's got a greenhouse dedicated to cucurbita [squash genus] that I'm unaware of--in mid-summer.

    You can certainly find them on and off at individual vegetable stores or some chain/franchise stores (see below) where the owner or manager has a call for them. But they will be imported.

      Thanks, Kagemusha and pearl3!

      I was able to locate them at Highland Farms (Kennedy/Ellesmere in Scarborough) - Mexican and a little pricier than the green zukes, but worked perfectly in my dinner party marinated zuke salad this past weekend!

      They show up occasionally at Highland Farms but no dice on "local or heirloom-type."
