    Thanks everyone!

    I got some today at St Lawrence for $6.99/lb at the fruit veg place downstairs. The man there said that is all they have left, no more for the season. So pick them up, where you can while you can!

    Upstairs they were selling for $8.99/lb.

          I saw some nice local fiddleheads last evening at Fiesta Farms (on Christie, between Dupont and Bloor).

          Picked some up at St. Lawrence (South) on Saturday... they should be available for a while.

          I usually find them in Kensington Market as well.

              If you are interested in gathering some, it is too late in the GTA, by at least a week. But they should be plentiful in the Bruce, Haliburton, Kawarthas and further north for one or two weeks.

                    I saw them yesterday at Fanfare Flowers - they're located on Yonge a couple blocks north of Eglinton.

                        Highland Farms on Hurontario south of the 401 had them on Saturday.

                        I had them yesterday, blanched and lightly swirled in French "de Nyons" extra virgin!

                          i've seen them at various places around town, most recently last thursday at the dufferin grove market. i imagine you'll get them there again this week.
