        One of the farmers at the market said they'd delivered to RIS, Dino, and Georgia Browns. I've seen them at 2941.

          If you're willing to expand to Baltimore, Bluegrass Tavern is using them in two or three dishes, including an insanely good lamb tartare with pickled ramps.

              I had some, unannounced, in a dish in DC at Fiola on Saturday. I heard they would be at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market last Saturday.

              Radius Pizza in Mt Pleasant. Vidalia had some dishes with them too. Haven't seen them at the farmers market yet, but I'm sure it will be soon.

                Radius's handmade pasta, asparagus, peas and ramps is excellent. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up on a pizza in the next week or two also.

                They should show up at Dupont this week or next but you have to get there early to get them.

                Ramp Alert!
                I had them on pizza at 2 Amy's last Sunday night and again last night on a pork belly dish at Black's in Bethesda. Would love to find them at a farmers market too, if anyone knows a place?

                  Thank God I lived in WV and I have a friend who, has for years, picked them wild and delivered me a bundle. I saw them at 12.99 a pound at Wegmans.
