Sorrel at USQ Farmer's Market Today!

I was so happy to see it as I've been waiting ... now I can make garlic & sorrel soup. Several vendors had it, though I did not buy it from the one selling it for $12 for 1/4 pound. Also the first asparagus that I've seen this season - from New Jersey. No favas or fresh peas, but I bought them at Garden of Eden, along with some fresh morels, for a dinner party tonight.
Anyone is looking for pea shoots should check the larger Asian supermarkets. It helps if you have a car, but I shop at Great Wall Supermarket in Brooklyn every Saturday, and pea shoots are always available at around $2.79/lb. Their prices are incredible on just about everything. If you make it out their, be sure to also stop at Circus Fruits on Fort Hamilton Pkwy- they had organic artichokes recently two for $1.00!!
