Place to buy preserves lemons?

I don't have time to make preserved lemons, so I was wondering if there is anywhere locally to buy them? Metrowest would be ideal.

    I'm a bit late here, but in the future, you can also find preserved lemons at Dave's Fresh Pasta in Davis.

      We got them at the Whole Foods near Newtonville. Thanks!

        I got them at Haymarket last summer at one of the Middle Eastern stores - the one that carries the olives. I think they are open year round - was hoping make a trip in town to get some myself (along with their wonderful olives!) but I stayed home, sick with a cold.

          I think I saw them in Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge last weekend. Not Metrowest, so call and make sure before you go if you are going to make the trip.

            You can also prepare them as you would normally and freeze them overnight and they soften nicely.

              Larger Whole Foods carry them in their cheese area - near the olives. Otherwise, Middle eastern markets - Mt. Auburn area in Watertown or Cedar's/Sabb's in Norwood.
