borlotti or cranberry beans

Where can I buy dried borlotti or cranberry beans? Preferably at a store west of Boston along route 95?

      I think I've seen the Baer farm beans at Wilson's Farms too. If you use those remember they are fresher than most dried beans and will take less time to cook.

        I think I bought some Baer's cranberry beans at Russos some time ago, so that's a good bet. It seems like their supply varies a lot, so if they're out of your way, call them and ask.
        I bet if you called on off hours they'd go look for you.

    2. While they don't always seem to have them in stock, Christina's Spice Shop in Inman Square carries them. Of course that doesn't come close to meeting your location criteria.

      1. Are you going to serve the with a nice cotechino?
