where can one buy lemongrass in cambrdige/somerville??

I've been wanting to make this Thai chicken soup recipe that involves lemongrass...I know you can get it at Russo's but I live near Porter Sq in Somerville and was wondering if there were any markets that might sell it nearby? Thanks!

  1. I haven't been there in a few months, but I'm fairly certain that Market Basket on Somerville Ave carries it.

    If it doesn't then pretty much all of the Whole Foods in Cambridge have it.

    1. I've bought it at the WF in Fresh Pond. Much pricier than Russo's or HK Market but it saves you a trip.

      1. You can also give Savenor's or Pemberton Farms a call.

        1. You can also get it from Flats Mentor farm at the Davis Square farmer's market, at least as of last week.

          1. Reliable Market in Union Sq usually has it. Also, Elephant Walk on Mass Ave (yes, the restaurant) often has it and a few other random ingredients in a case at the front.
