    Andronico's on Irving in SF has them, but compared to what you can get them for down east, they are really expensive.

      I've seen them at Tower market on Portola, also pretty expensive, as is pretty muach all the produce there.

      Was at Andronico's on 3/31 and they were out of fiddlehead ferns. The produce guy said they get them in from time to time. We'll just have to keep watching...

        Wow, they moved fast! There was a pile there only a few days earlier.

        Berkeley Bowl in the East Bay has them right now too. Can't remember price per pound, will try to look when I shop next.
