looking for fresh lima beans in the shell in Bklyn
- jerry j.
or would even go to Manhattan, downtown - has anyone seen them in a store or the greenmarket recently. They don't have them at the park slope food coop
Fresh lima beans generally have a very short season. They have been at the GAP greenmarket for a couple of weeks, but probably won't be there too much longer. However, when they're at that greenmarket, you can probably find them at the Union Square market or the one near Borough Hall in downtown Bk.
Spotted fresh in the pod last week at the PSFC
fresh limas, favas and soybeans/edamame
I had dragontongue beans from there three weeks ago, and they were a huge disappointment
(as huge a disappointment as a pole bean can be, anyway)
sometimes they only get a box or two of something, so it can go fast
