Has anyone seen quince, in any market, in the East Bay (preferably farmers' markets or independent/non-chain groceries)? Thank you!!

  1. Thought I'd seen some at the Berkeley Bowl West last weekend.

      1. Berkeley Bowl East had them yesterday (Sunday 10/24) at about $1.70 per pound as I recall. They looked great and had that wonderful quince smell. Signage indicated they are Californian.

        1. Monterey Foods has some, $1.98/pound. In the "front" section of the main part of the store on the left as you walk in. They seemed a bit old, and were a mild flavored variety but cooked up OK.
