Fig/Quince in Vancouver?

akt22 Nov 7, 2011 07:21 AM

Has anyone in or around Vancouver seen any fresh figs or quinces this fall? I think I might have missed the boat on figs as they aren't at any of my local stores now, but what about quinces? I have a chutney recipe I want to make!

    Just saw some figs at Granville Island on Saturday.

      For quince, try the winter farmers market:

        Quince for sale at AAA hastings and Willingdon in Burnaby. $1.99/lb.

        It seems a bit late for figs.
