Does anyone know of a place where I can find muscat grapes? I was able to track them down at Bristol Farms about a month ago, but I worry that they are out of season... :( !!

Thanks for your help!

    I often get muscat and kyoho grapes at the Nijiya in Little Tokyo.

      You found them a month ago because they were in season in Chile. Check with a farmers market to see when the local season is. I know one of the farmers at the Pasadena/Saturday market grows them (I know because they are my favorite) as well as concords among others but I don't think grape season is upon us, at least locally.
