    I'll bump up the request so that I can add anywhere in DC, Montgomery or Howard counties.

        Neither DC nor Montgomery or Howard counties - but in Arlington - from Ash Wednesday until Easter Sunday - most delicious I've ever eaten:

        Pastries by Randolph
        4500 Lee Highway
        Arlington, VA 22207
        Open all day Saturday and half days Sundays - but best to order your hot cross buns in advance on those days!

        These are soft and fragrant and filled with both citron and raisins. Sold individually or in half dozens.

        Whole Foods usually also has hot cross buns - but closer to actual Easter Week - and it's a smaller heavier (whole wheat?) bun than Randolph's with currants - good but a totally different thing than Randolph's.

        Not in Bethesda/Rockville but I see them sold every year (around this time) at Marvelous Market (various locations...Dupont Circle, Eastern Market etc.)
