Does anyone know where I can find these? I haven't seen them at the Wedge.

    Saw them at Shuang Hur tonight.

    They are located at I believe 27th St. and Nicollet Ave. in Minneapolis.

      United Noodle has pea shoots (aka pea tips or pea leaves) when they're in season. I haven't seen pea shoots at any of the co-ops.

          I have bought pea tips at Trader Joe's. They are densely packed in tiny plastic containers and found near bags of salad greens. They cost a lot more compared to Asian grocery stores. But, Asian grocery stores tend to package the shoots in huge amounts, which I cannot consume fast enough in a household of 2. So, TJ's version is convenient. You may know that there are 2 different kinds of pea shoots - "big" ones and regular ones. The "big" ones have larger leaves and hollow stems. I was taught by my Chinese in-laws that the "big" ones are considered to be better because they are more tender, whereas the regular kind is crunchier. I like both. TJ's carries the regular kind.

            they are common at the farmer's mkts when they are in season. it being september, anywhere you'd find them currently ships them in.
