where to find ramps
I am looking for a source of ramps n the bay area - the closer to Santa Cruz the better.
I looked into buying them online from the east coast but it costs a fortune because they overnight them.
Far West Fungi in the Ferry Building has them in season as well. I just bought some this weekend.
Far West Fungi
1 Ferry Bldg # 34, San Francisco, CA
They are at practically every market on the peninsula, but they normally only bring a small selection of seasonal mushrooms. I've only ever seen ramps at the store in the Ferry building. I think they have a store at their farm in Moss Landing, but I've never been.
If anyone does see ramps on the peninsula (or even the South Bay), I would love to find some down here as well...
The Mushroom (far west fungi) people were very nice and said they could put some of an order they were getting on Friday onto a truck to their place in Moss Landing on Tuesday ($20/lb). As it turned out I had several people interested in some ramps bringing my order up to 4 lbs
This made it reasonable to order through an online vendor earthy delights for ~ $11/lb but $33 overnight shipping. So I should have some tuesday. In some ways I would rather use a local vendor but while the ultimate price would be ~ the same the ramps would be ~ 5 days old so I went with the overnight. I will report when I get them.
