Where to find the best TOMATOES and a good Candy Thermometer?!

bbeline | Feb 28, 200706:09 AM     13

I am hoping someone can help me find some good fresh tomatoes in Montreal. I love the Jean Talon Market... and there is a stand there that sells the best tomatoes I have ever tasted; but as a resident of Verdun (sans voiture) it takes forever to get there. Where else can I find good tomatoes... or good PRODUCE for that matter.... like carrots that acutally have a flavor.

Where I live there is a Provigo... where they sell a few different kinds of tomatoes. I've been eyeing these organic ones from Italy with the hope that they might have some taste but I've yet the courage to buy them.

Also, I need to buy a good Taylor Candy Thermometer... you know one of those long ones encased in metal... I can't find it anywhere downtown. This is Montreal... there must be a specialty food store somewhere that sells this thing!

Dying for decent produce...
