          They are just coming into season. If you have friends in California or Florida who have access to a ML tree, have them ship you some in a flat rate USPS box. It would be worth it! The San Francisco farmers market sells them by the bushel when they are in season.

            I saw them Friday at Trader Joe's in Arlington Heights--four nice-looking ones wrapped together in plastic.

                      I got some at the Hingham WHole Foods this week. SOunds like Whole Foods has them generally but maybe individual stores only have limited supplies and run out fast? They're generally very helpful if you call them and ask them to check if something's in stock.

                        Try calling Russo's and asking them for some--I know they have them somewhere, b/c I order them wholesale frequently.

                          I've seen them recently at Formaggio in Cambridge.
