Where can I find lemongrass on the North Shore?

I know there's a super 88 in Malden, but are there any small asian markets up on the North Shore??

  1. You may be able to find it at your local supermarket ( shaw's, stop n shop, market basket). I know the supermarkets in the melrose area carry it, as does the stop n shop in n andover.

        Yup- I think Wilsons has just about everything you may need! Wasn't sure if it was in the right location for the OP, though. I made my weekly trek there last saturday, and have to say, their grapefruit, scones and lutenica ( pepper, eggplant, carrot, oil) dip were especially tasty!! Also bought their burgers ( the only burger we eat) and a duck for this weekend.

      2. Wilson's may not be in the OPs area, but I think it is worth the trek!! I still have to make it to the "otherside" to Russo's.

          Agreed- It is definitely worth the trip. Every once in a while, I but something there that really blows me away.-the Maine blueberries last year were so good. I had a lot of dental work done right in the middle of corn season, so am looking forward to their corn this year.
          I also need to try Russo's. Will have to put it on my calendar for a trip in the spring- maybe I can combine it with an ice cream tasting along the way!

        2. def marketbasket. got sum earlier this week.
