Where can I find "wax beans" in Houston?

lazy_engineer Jul 6, 2008 07:44 PM

I want to make this recipe: http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives... , but I could not find fresh wax beans at HEB, where I would have expected to find them (and the guy working there didn't know what the heck I was talking about, LOL). Anyone know where I can find these? Are they available at any regular grocery stores? I live way up in Spring, so I'd like to find something closer than, say, Canino's or Whole Foods.

Thanks!

    I went to Canino's today and they have fresh shelled purple hull peas, lady creamer peas, lima beans, and speckled limas, green beans, but no wax beans. You may want to check the Framer's markets. This one says they have wax beans:

    I don't know how current that page is so I would call before I made a trek.

      Thanks so much, esp for reporting on Canino's! I will have to visit the farmer's market this coming weekend.
