ramps in baltimore

Bluegrass tavern In fed hill has them at a little sidewalk market right now. Just got four bunches.

  1. Ha! I was there too and got a couple. I picked mine up before I ate brunch though, and was glad I did, since they were sold out when I got through eating.

    Edit: I will add that this is a *very* small market. It pays to show up early and have reasonable expectations. That said, this morning they had ramps, asparagus, Piedmont ridge beef, three or four cheese, and some charcuturie including duck prosciutto.

    There were also some wines and beers available. Limited quantities of a limited number of products -- what makes it worthwhile is that it's all of exceptional quality.

      Awesome! Yeah, we got the ramps, some lovely beef, a jar of bacon jam and a bottle of wine. I wonder if they're going to make a regular thing of it?

        From what I heard yes they are. They did the first about six weeks ago right before Patrick morrow left as chef, but he said he planned it as a monthly thing. As far as I know now that the dust has settled over Morrow's departure they will go back to it as a regular deal.

          That's great news! I wonder if they'd work out a way of cold storing your bounty while you had brunch in their restaurant. (Do they do Saturday brunch?) Although I guess a cooler would work too.

            Yes, they do Saturday brunch -- in fact that's how I found out about the first market. I don't think they do cold storage, but you could bring a small cooler.
