Where to buy edible flowers

I'm trying to buy some edible flours this week- maybe 25 to 30 of them to put on a cake. Does anyone have any leads on where to buy them? Thanks!

  1. Don't know if you're near Wilson Farms in Lexington, but if you ask at their florist corner, I think they will point you in the right direction.

    1. I have seen them at whole foods. Maybe also Savenors?

      1. Sid Wainer and Sons in New Bedford often has them. Give them a call.
        http://www.sidwainer.com/ You're apt to have quite a choice actually:

        They'll even ship them!

        1. They always have them at the Whole Foods in Brighton. Call ahead.

          1. Siena Farms usually has them at the Copley Farmers' Market on Tuesday and Fridays. Here's their site if you want to give them a call.

            1. I saw them with the packaged herbs at Hannaford in Easton, MA this weekend...

                :(

                The next day, a plane crashes in their parking lot...

              2. Whole Foods in Hingham always has them in their produce section, near the loose baby spinach. I imagine that other Whole Foods would carry them as well. Call first.

                1. Union Sq Farmers Market had squash blossoms several weeks ago; I don't remember vendor's name. I think Galangatron posted; take a look.

                    It was the Drumlin Farms booth.

                  2. Pemberton Farms in Cambridge, on Mass Ave towards Arlington, has 'em.
