  1. Have not seen them yet...usually its the 1st/2nd week in May before they begin to appear.

    1. I've never seen them...where can you usually get them? \\

      I've heard great things and want to try...

      1. I saw some at CFM this past weekend. Forget which stand though. I'll let you know if I see them again this weekend.

        1. Co-op and Superstore carry the fiddleheads.

          1. I saw fiddleheads at the Cherry Pit (CFM) last weekend. $5.99 roughly for a clamshell.

              In Edmonton I just bought them at IGA.

            2. Went to opening day at DJ's market and they had fresh fiddleheads for $5 a clamshell. Very tasty! There's also a price tag for morels but I didn't see any yet :(

                DJ's is open!? Why don't I keep up on these things!?

              2. Bought some at Crossroads, $9 per lb.

                1. Saw some at Sunterra (Britannia location) yesterday... $3.99/package I believe.

                  I've never tried them... maybe I should go back :)

                      Saw fiddleheads at the Farmers Market in the Currie Barracks - $10.99/lb or $6.99 in a plastic box. Very green and very fresh.
