Turron de Dona Pepa

Does anybody know where I can buy this seasonal Peruvian dessert? It's several layers of dense, cookie-ish cake with a jam-like mixed fruit filling(mostly pineapple and quince) and decorative sugar candies on top.

October (el mes morado, when women traditionally dress in purple)is the month for Turron, which is associated with the procesion of the Lord of Miracles or el Señor de los Milagros.
