Ramps in MSP
Out east ramps are showing up in the farmers markets. I was just wondering if anyone had seen them around here, or when the general time to expect them was.
Our coop has had them the past few springs. (Mississippi Markiet.) I haven't seen any yet this year. I don't think it should be too long though. Tulips and crocuses are starting to come up in the yard. I'm not remembering where ours came from but I'm guessing Wisconsin, so figure enough time for it to warm up and for the ramps to grow.
Still a couple weeks to go yet, if the last few years have been any indication. And, uhhh, yeah, that'll depend on when winter finally departs.
The Wedge and Mississippi Market co-ops usually have ramps. The produce manager would probably have an estimate for when they might arrive. But I wouldn't expect them before May...
I think late April/early May is ramp time around here. I've gotten them in my first CSA box of the season in the first week of May.
Apparently the season is really late around here. The guy who runs the cheese shop at France 44 Wines has some pickled ones from last year, and said fresh ones wouldn't be up for a while.
