Has anyone found these recently? I keep coming across 'sweet lemons' at all the independent produce shops...but some reading suggests these are not the same creature.

thanks!

      They often have them at this little store in the granville island market beside edible bc and across from the Granville Island Tea Company...the name is escaping me but they always have neat things that are harder to source in regular supermarkets...
      I have also seen them at Choices in Yaletown but they are not a regular item.

        I bought some @ Sunrise Produce on Powell Street earlier in the month-won't post the price out of fear of offending those who believe 'paying more is better' a-la Whole Foods et al.

          Hmm...they don't happen to still carry them, do they? IIRC, Meyer Lemons are going to be out of season very soon, if not now.
