Where are the Artichokes?

I've been waiting for the BIG artichokes to hit the supermarkets and I haven't seen ANY. I assumed Fairway or Whole Foods would have them already - am I too anxious? Aren't they in season March - May?

If anyone spots the big ones in Bergen County (I'm near Ridgewood), let me know! Thx.

  1. A friend of mine got some big ones at a Wegman's.. not sure if you have one near you. He paid $5 for 2.

      I just bought 2 @ A&P, for $3.00, and 2 weeks ago from Wegmans (dont remember price. Wegmans also has the mini's, they're just "ok" any time of year). The size is medium only. I think its too early yet, maybe by beginning-mid April. The texture is still tough, not been happy with them yet. I'm hoping they get better!
