ISO rhubarb - GTA west

hi hounds,

hoping you can help me out. i was at a party and someone brought a yummy rhubarb cake. i managed to snag the recipe and would like to make it myself. i'm not very familiar with rhubarb but i think it might be out of season now (or late in the season).

anyway, i'm wondering if anyone can tell me where i might be able to buy fresh or frozen rhubarb in the GTA ... preferably in the west end. I'm able to get to the Etobicoke farmers market on Saturday if there's rhubarb there.

thanks so much!

  1. Try Trillium Organic Farms' stall at Liberty Village Market. They had some on Thursday at Edwards Gardens.

    1. Saw some at Longos today (was Oakville location but maybe others have it too)

      1. Saw it at Highland Farms in Miss. this weekend.

        1. fwiw, here in durham i have purchased it at costco, and local farmers' markets. it does not seem as though it is out of season yet

            I can confirm it's at GTA West Costco (Mississauga North) still... I was just looking at them yesterday and surprised to see it still here since it's summer time and not spring.

            I did see them at the Milton farmers market (Saturday morning) 2 weeks ago. I'm not sure if they were still there but they were lovely vivid colour and not wilted. The farmer and his daughter were also equally nice!

          2. this weekend i saw fresh Rhubarb at three places in Etobicoke.

            1. the saturday farmers market @ lakeshore and parklawn.
            2. loblaws on east mall and burnhamthorpe.
            3. costco on queensway.
