Sorrel in Seattle
I'm trying to find sorrel in a larger bunch than the grocer's few measly sprigs in a plastic box for $3.99; I need it to make a European specialty from my childhood that I dearly miss. I heard a rumor that maybe I might find it at one of the many farmer's markets in the Seattle area. Anyone ever run across large bunches of sorrel at one of them?
Sorrel is widely available at the local farmers markets but its season tends toward spring. I don't remember noticing any yesterday at the UD farmers market but then again, I wasn't looking for it.
You could also check with Sosio's in Pike Place Market. They have a large selection of fresh herbs in back. They don't display them so you have to ask.
Yes, I talked to every produce vendor in the Market, including the extra summer ones on Fridays & Saturday, and I've checked out the UD & Ballard markets so far. According to the vendors I talked to as well as web research, sorrel starts in spring but will grow throughout the summer. If anyone spots any at their local farmers' market, please let me know!
