Has anyone seen fresh figs in the area? I'd be so grateful to find some.

    If they are here, you'll find them at Russo's or Arax. Call and ask. I did see them at Russo's but that was two weeks ago.

      Saw them at Russo's this past Sunday, but haven't been since so I can't say if they're still there.

      Syrian Grocery Importing Co. in the South End routinely has them.

          I've often seen figs at Formaggio. Haven't been there in a while, so I don't know if they have them now.
