potato days or nurseries that sell tubers individually

I am looking for either a potato day, as the one i would usually go to in London has been cancelled... failing that, do any of you know of any nurseries that sell individual tubers? I have heard this is common in some parts of the country, but as I'm based in London, I've not seen this locally.
The reason I am keen is that I used to be able to get hold of one or two tubers of many different varieties such as Shetland Blacks, Belle de Fontenay etc when Pennard Plants did their potato days in London... sadly missed this year and last due to covid, so i ended up with a kg net each of a couple of varieties and couldn't get what i wanted.

    The Potato House sells bags of 5 or 6 tubers. I have ordered Belle de Fontenay, and others, from them.

    Hadn't realised Dundry had cancelled their open day. They have a great listing (and you can get them delivered l believe).

    If you are in North London,  then Ayletts GC near St Albans isn't too far away, they sell potatoes loose. They do 2 sizes of "fill a bag" . I take some sheets of kitchen paper with me to act a separators, between various varieties.

    No problem @muckyhandsmike. They always have an amazing selection, but it might be worth ringing if you want a specific one  :)
