Quince in Chicago?

I'm trying to buy some quince, has anyone seen them for sale at a grocery or farmer's market? Thanks for your help.

  1. They're not in season right now, but when they are (earlier in the summer) they always have them @ Devon Market at 1500 W. Devon.

    1. I was at H Mart this evening and saw quince there.

      1. HarvesTime Foods had them today at 1.69 each.

        1. re: Eldon Kreider

          Angelo Caputo's Fresh Market in Elmwood Park had a large supply today at 1.19 each labeled as being from California. They did not have any a week ago. Technically not in Chicago but across the street from Chicago on Harlem at the corner with Grand Avenue.
