      Drumlin Farms had them this past Saturday at the Union Square Market in Somerville. If last year was any guide they carried them for a few weeks and the woman told me this was the second week they had them on sale this year.

    2. The Hmong folks at the Belmont farmer's market often have them. Many of the local farmer's markets have someone or other selling them:

          Mmmmm. I would like to find some in RI to prepare my own, AND try the Venda version. Did you taste the ones at Venda, okra?

          1. re: twilight goddess

            I did! Similar to Striper's preparation, prosciutto, cheese, battered and fried. Reheated gently in the toaster oven. I think I paid ~$10 for 4 of them. Lots of other goodies, manicotti, stuffed eggplant, on and on... :)

        2. Last year I did some stuffed with a bit of fried prosciutto, grated manchego cheese, then battered and fried... YUM.

            Yeah, I was thinking something similar, StriperGuy, I have to teach a cooking lesson tomorrow.

          2. I've seen them from Lunni Farms at the Harvard University Farmer's Market (the one over by the science building on Tuesday afternoons).
