Anyone Been to Plum Produce
Just wondering what the word is on Barbara Lynch's new
store - Plum Produce - has anyone been yet? I haven't had my fill of heirloom tomatoes yet and was wondering if I would have to take out a motgage to get them there?
I peeked in the window the other night. It's tiny but they had lots of stuff. I remember pints of blueberries and raspberries for $6. Seems a little pricey for me, but not surprising, given both the space and the fact that it's a Barbara Lynch venture. I guess worth the extra bucks if you live in the south end and need hard to find, quality ingredients in a pinch.
I peered in the window last night. I was afraid to go into the space for fear I'd laugh right out loud at the preposterous prices. $.25 for a single tomatillo the size of a marble? $.40 each for scallions? Mesclun mix (not even great looking, although it was the end of the day) for $10/lb
I realize there's not much else in the neighborhood but at those prices I'd want the vegetables to perform special dance routines in fancy dress before I ate them.
Ok, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration but not much.
Ha, two "window-peerers"...bet we're not the only ones. The space is so small it's kinda tough to go in and "browse..."
Thanks - think that I will just move on from tomatoes and settle for more affordable sweet potatoes and rhutabagas - after all that will be eating "in season" anyways.
Well, I DO remember seeing heirloom tomatoes, I'm sure they weren't bargain basement prices but I bet they're good.
