Looking for fresh figs--have I missed them or am I too early? Has anyone seen them around the city?
I'm craving them too (figs marinated in EVOO & balsamic vinegar, arugula, shaved Parm. Reg. - yum!). You might be too early. Haven't looked for them at the markets. None at Union Square Greenmarket today. Peaches are here.
I think you might be on the later side. A month ago they were all over the place. Fairway, Citarella, Chelsea Market.
Chelsea Market had pint containers for pretty cheap (don't remember how much) last week.
$2.99 a box at Chelsea Market. Green or black. I boought a box today. I have also seen them at the street stands in Manhattan this week.
