Ramps at markets or in the wild?

Where can I find Ramps? I'm willing to travel to markets or forage. Any thoughts?

    Anybody know what's going on in 2012? All these damn recipes and no ramps. Perhaps next year I'll plunk down the 500$ for a CSA. :(

      Have you tried Your Dekalb Farmers Market or Harry's in Marietta?

        are ramps now the new fad ingredient?

          If so, that's one fad I won't be participating in. ;-)

          For new fad food items in short supply, it will take a few growing seasons for farmers to catch up. I would try the high-end markets like Whole Foods, Harry's (owned by Whole Foods), Fresh Market where they fetch a higher price for all those looking to max profits on rate items. I would just substitute...they're just ramps after all.

          I got some at Whole Foods on Sunday. I think they were $15.99/lb (maybe 16.99). Which was cheaper than last year when they were $20/lb. And a half pound was plenty to make a killer Ramp Pesto.
