          I don't think there's any local rhubarb yet: the stuff at the market is $5.99 or $6.99 a pound. Sounds like first-class air fare to me.

            farmer's market and some grocery stores

            I adore rhubarb. Like it best poached a la Pie and Pastry Bible, maybe with buttermilk panna cotta
