In the Toronto area you're looking at cookstown's greens for edible flowers. It's not cheap.
One batch we got at work one time had these tiny little bugs in the flowers. Luckily we caught that before a plate got sent out.
Thanks, do you know any others that ship throughout Canada? Or that happen to be in atlantic region? Not working in toronto at the moment.

The entire restaurant is seated at a tiny bar around the open kitchen so i discreetly brought it to the attention of the waitress who was like "oh yeah, that happens sometimes...they come from the flowers. Would you like us to make another one without the flower this time?" I wanted to say "Oh as long as its normal then, let me finish off these bugs!"
