where can I find them? Anyone been to whole foods in Princeton lately? they usually have a good selection of mushrooms, curious if they are carrying Morels.

If not, any other place close? Middlesex cnty? Thanks.

    This older chow post says they found Morels late in the season at Delicious Orchards COlts Neck NJ.

    Sure a seasoned chowhound can help you more specifically.
    I love to learn new things. Hope this helps you some.

      Oh, and maybe the Exotic Mushroom Man at the Rutgers Farm Market East Brunswick NJ can help you.

        I was at DO last thursday or friday and I did not see fresh morels - fantastic shiatakes though! I'd call first if I were you.

          Found the last handful at Whole Foods in Princeton. 39.99/lb 5bucks worth was MORE than enough for a cup/4 servings of risotto. ;)

        Sorry I didn't see this post earlier--I could have told you that Wegmans in Princeton had them--I think still do.
