Jerusalem artichokes/Sunchokes in Calgary??

Looking for jerusalem artichokes, aka sunchokes. Had them roasted at River Cafe this winter (delish)and have been checking at the Cross Roads farmer's market and Coop on 12th and 12th almost weekly with no luck.

Anyone come across these little tubers in the Calgary area?

  1. You might have better luck at the Currie Barracks, but I haven't found any myself. I know that most of the River Cafe ones come from their own plot at the Highwood Crossing farm.

    1. Not sure if you're still looking, but I found some in Currie Barrack's this morning at Blush Lane. A little black and I haven't cooked them yet, and I took a fair number, but there's some left.

      1. ive seen them at my local sobeys

        1. I've seen them at either Safeway or Co-op, but only once. I can't remember which store it was. I thought it was Co-op, but in my memory it's laid out like Safeway, with the produce along the right wall as you come in the store.
