DIL got hers from her mom. I think, though, that you can grow your own by allowing a potato to form eyes, then cut up the potato, making sure that each piece contains an eye, and plant those. You might be able to use seed catalogues, too.
We (DIL & I) are growing all sorts of "oddities" this year. I have always loved purple potatoes, purple cauliflower, red-leafed lettuce, etc. The additional color is a good signal of the additional nutrients in the plant.
It's OK to just say no.

We grow the purple potatoes. My kids think it's cool. We've tried purple cauliflower before and I've seen other colors. Haven't seen the purple carrots. We've had some yellow ones that we grew in our garden. We've also grown purple bell peppers before.
