Baer's Best Beans, where to buy

drewinmrblhd Nov 8, 2011 09:39 AM

I was able to purchase several bags at the Marblehead famers market and greatly enjoyed them. I can't seem to find a website or a distributor in the area, any suggestions?

    Russo's normally has them, as does Wilson Farms. I don't make it out to either much, so I tend to stock up. Made some of the cranberry beans this weekend!

    I haven't seen them closer into the city, but I'd love to find a source closer in..

      I've seen them at Sherman Market in Union Square. (But you may want to call before stopping by; I'm not sure if they're always stocked there.)

        russos has a big selection, under the tomatoes, over by the cheeses. ( what a friend we have in cheeses!)

        Wilson Farms in Lexington carries them, I buy them there all the time. This interesting article says they are at Russo's and Idlewild Farms too. http://www.ediblecommunities.com/bost...

          Bags of beans at Wilson Farm?

          I didn't find any last time I was looking for beans there...where are they hiding?

            I can't remember where they are. Ask, though, because they definitely sell them.

              At Wilson farm they were on the wall of the vegetable section that backs up to the street/ outdoor market area when I got some in late August.

              Oh, and at Russo's they were down low on a shelf in the area near the cheese counter.

                They move them around so definitely ask, they always have them. I think cpingenot is correct about where they currently are.
