Shallots in west 'burbs for a good price?
If you've spotted shallots recently in the western suburbs, and they were good-looking and well-priced (for the buyer ;-), please post it here.
I don't know why these are so often in bad shape or really expensive...onions and garlics aren't that way.
The product doesn't move as quickly, and hasn't been bred to have the shelf-life of a Twinkie.
I've always had good luck with Byerly's. Cheaper than the co-ops and often in much better shape. They'll be hitting farmer's markets soon as well.

kevin, are the shallots at Byerly's a decent size? I regularly see shallots at the farmers' markets, but they mostly seem the size of a hefty garlic clove (or even a non-hefty garlic clove), versus the palm-sized ones you see when TV folk are mincing. For the high-ish price and small return, I usually pass, but would love to find shallots that have a little more size. Am I missing a good vendor at one of the markets?
