Where to get blood oranges?

Den Apr 5, 2011 07:40 PM

I want to work on a couple variations of a Sicilian blood orange salad. Have you seen blood oranges around (preferably Chestnut Hill or nearby Montco area)?

    Top of the Hill Market in Chestnut Hill had them about a week and a half ago. They may still have them.

      Not Montco/Chestnut Hill but Iovine's in the RTM has had both California blood orages (smaller - 3/1.00) and Sicilian (larger - 1.00 each) for the last few weeks

        I've recently found them at Wegmans (Cherry Hill).

          Main Street Market in Manayunk usually has them.

            Let me add that Giordano's Produce (9th and Washington in the Italian Market) had boxes of the Sicilian Blood Oranges for ten dollars this morning on the Washington Ave side

              Produce junction has blood oranges fairly often, but it's unpredictable. Don't know where their Upper Montco locations are--there is one in Wynnefield that I go to from Merion.

                Thanks for the replies. I ended up finding the blood oranges not too far from home at Lee's in Conshohocken.
