Where to get the best heirloom tomatoes in Montreal? »Summer 2011 »

Last year at Jean Talon Market we had the delight of going to Monsieur Tomate, a stand on the west side of Jean Talon Market close to Première Moisson, he had one of the best varieties and selections of heirloom tomatoes I had ever found in Montreal, you would pick and chose as you see fit and the staff was so lovely and pleasant. I made the best tomato carpaccios with his produce.

'Lo and behold this year he is not there anymore... I went around in circles for an hour in the market in a daze really looking for Mr Tomato and was wizout ze luck as they say. Anybody can help point me back on the right path, the road to pure tomato enlightenment? Perhaps his heirloom babies are not ready yet? Yet that would surprise me, it is already close to mid August...

....so here I am a pouting as I sigh, pondering my heirloom tomatoLESS fate...
