    I have seen them at Russo's in the past. You might want to give them a call.

      Barmy and I bought two Meyer lemons at Russo's just this past Saturday - they had plenty.

      my experience (in other states) is that whole foods has them when they're in season.

        I'd say its the same here in MA, or at least at my Hingham WF. I saw them when I was there last week.

        I bought a 4lb pack of Meyer's at Costco, and that's probably too many lemons for most people but it's the best deal you will find pricewise. Of course, you need to be a member - but if you are not, ask a friend.

        And yes, Russo's usually has them too at a similar reasonable price point..

          Too many Meyer lemons? Oh, to be so afflicted more often ;)

          Seriously, though, they make wonderful preserved lemons, if you find you need to use them up.
