Cardoons & the City?

Anyone know where I can find cardoons? I would like to try out some recipes....

  1. Cardoons are a late fall/early winter vegetable. I doubt you will be able to get them now.

    1. When they are in season, Agata and Valentina often carries them.

      1. I don't know about the seasons, but I saw some very nice looking ones at the Chelsea Market (the vegetable market inside) about 3 weeks ago.

        1. Yup, cardoons/cardone are now available more often than ever. I saw them last week surprisingly. You'll have better luck if you ask on the OB board because I think that cardoons are likely to be scarce in Manhattan. Just a hunch.

          1. Ii was surprised to see cardoons at the Chelsea WF about 10 days ago. Unfortunately I passed them by. Today I asked in WF 14th St. but they had never heard of them.

            Has anyone seen cardoons in Manhattan lately?
