Homemade fried green tomatoes

Hi everyone! Long-time listener, first-time caller :)

I was wondering if anyone knew where (or if) I could get green tomatoes this time of the year. I'm making a Southern-themed dinner for some friends this week, want to give them a try, and have been looking everywhere for them. The SM Farmer's Market yesterday didn't have any, and when I stopped by the West LA one this morning, no tomatoes (red or green) were to be found. Is it possible around this time of year?

  1. I'd try ethnic markets. Persian markets often have them because they're used for pickling. Maybe give Elat Market on Pico a call? Or call a place like Canter's that has them pickled and find out where they buy from.
