      You're a rip! Do you go in armed? BTW, did you try that new chic place on rt1 yet?

    2. Russo's had them this afternoon.

      1. Fruit Center Marketplace in East Milton Square had them on Sunday

        1. Whole Foods had a big basket of tender young fiddleheads. I think they were about $5 a lbs, but I don't have my receipt any more. Very delicious.

            Russo's had them for $10 - I am shocked that WF has them for a reasonable price.
            You know how the reasonably priced produce has all sorts of "this is icky ordinary non-organic produce" signs? They must be the non-organic grown-in-landfill variety

          2. Spotted at Wilson Farms as well. Can't remember the price, just my shock at seeing it, and I didn't come home with any.
