I've been looking without success for broccoli rabe in the Baltimore city area. Local supermarkets have been of no help. Is it simply the wrong season? does this require an Italian market to recreate my grandmother's "bitter broccoli" recipe? Any suggestions welcome!

    DiPasquale's in Highlandtown often has rapini in their market. It is a fall green, so it's in season up until really cold weather hits.

      You can find it in most Asian markets. Check H-Mart.

        Whole Foods usually has it.

          I bought some at Whole Foods (Mt. Washington) over the Summer

            Thanks, everyone! I'll stop by Mt. Washington (the closest option) this weekend, and venture further to DiPasquale's or H-Mart if needed.
