Hearts of Gold melons in the Fallon/Reno area -- where are they available?

Came through Fallon yesterday and the two markets on Hwy 50 did not have them. Any Ideas?

  1. I haven't looked this year but in previous years Raley's always seems to have them.

      The Raley's in Fallon not only did not have them, but the produce person there said "they are not up to Raley's standards..." This is from an outfit that thinks asparagus with 1" diameter bases is the 'best around'... and they had a big display of fresh corn that had dry husks.

    2. They're avavilable at the Tuesday and Saturday farmer's markets, too.

      1. My mom is totally loyal to Rayley's and reports no sightings so far...
