Can I buy rhubarb?
Does anyone know where I can find rhubarb in this city? I've been waiting for months to make some recipes using it, and I feel like it is rhubarb season now -- but last week I looked at the Union Square farmer's market, another farmer's market (can't remember the name right now), Whole Foods, my local grocery store.. and found nothing.
Am I too late, or am I just looking in all the wrong places? Thanks!
I was at Union Square this past Monday around noon and saw rhubarb at several vendors, but not a huge amount. Maybe it was sold out by the time you arrived?
Definitely not too late. I live near Boston so I can't help, but it is appearing in stores and gardens now, and I buy it well into summer.

Earlier is always better for items that are just back in season and/or of limited quantities.
According to the Union Square Greenmarket Twitter account, Hoeffner Farm had some today.
