Places that sell rhubarb pastries?

Does anyone know of any bakeries that sell rubarb pastries? Something like rhubarb coffeecakes or muffins... I've seen raspberry-rhubarb muffins at flour, which are good, but I'm looking for something with a little more rhubarb kick.

    Volante Farms in Needham sometimes has Strawberry Rhubarb pies. I love their pies! They are homemade by a woman who built a bake shop for commercial baking in her home. Everything she makes is delicious and perfectly baked.
    Speaking of rhubarb I had a nice cocktail this past weekend. It was a rubarb peach bellini. Very interesting and pretty too.

      Flour (South End, Fort Point) has, on occasion, rhubarb stuffs. I got the muffin but wasn't impressed (no rhubarb in my pick).

      Try Petsy Pies in Cambridgeport and outside POrter Sq.

        A&J King Artisan Bakers in Salem has strawberry rhubarb tarts that are quite tasty.

          I think I've gotten strawberry-rhubarb pies from Petsi. My other source was an ex-roomie, but she doesn't sell to the public!

          We got an amazing strawberry-rhubarb pie from Verrill Farms a couple of years ago...not cliched at all. Great pastry, tender rhubarb with good bite, and just enough strawberry to complement, and not overly sweet. No idea if they still make it, but since it is hit or miss with their selection, so I'd call ahead.

            I second this. I love Verill Farms pies... the filling always tastes so fresh and not too sweet, and the crumb topping is delicious. I've had the strawberry rhubarb and really enjoyed it, and they have other interesting combinations, too (peach-blackberry, plum-raspberry, etc).

            Johnnie's Foodmaster in Somerville makes wonderfully tasty strawberry-rhubarb pies.
