  1. I haven't been this summer, but last summer you could usually get squash & zucchini blossoms at the Jackson Heights farmers' market, Sundays 8-3 on 34th ave between 77th and 78th streets.

    1. Try Brooklyn Grange: http://brooklyngrangefarm.com/markets/
      I think I remember seeing squash blossoms last weekend.

        I think it is late in the season for Ramps.

          Agreed...ramps are available in the Spring. Have you tried the Queens County Farm on Little Neck Parkway in Glenn Oaks?

      2. They had some squash blossoms at the Sunnyside Greenmarket last weekend (first stall on the corner, I think). You might also ask at groceries that cater to Mexicans, or even taquerias/trucks, since flor de calabaza is a staple in quesadillas.
