Tomatoes for saucing and canning - price?

allyson | Sep 15, 2012 10:02 AM

I'm trying to figure out where I might be able to find large amounts of slightly bruised or soft tomatoes to can and make sauce with. I've just moved to NY, but back in Texas, farmer's would have big boxes for less than a dollar a pound, but so far the best I've seen here is a 5lb basket for $12. Is that the best I can expect? Or is there some other place I should go to find what I'm looking for? Any advice would be much appreciated!
