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

          Co-op and Superstore carry the fiddleheads.

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

              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 :(

                  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.
