Finding Meyer Lemons

  • s

I saw them at costco (can't remember the price off hand), but other than that I usually only shop at Asian stores and don't really see meyer lemons.

So my question is where do you find meyer lemons that are good quality? Where is the cheapest? Which has best value?

How often are they available?

Thanks

  1. They're at Highland Farms in Miss., maybe other stores, too? Not cheap.

    1. they're only available now and then for a reasonable period of time, not sure when exactly the season ends.

      you can get them at loblaws, fiesta, etc. i doubt you will ever find them at an asian store. the pricing is pretty much consistent across the board and they come in bags of 1lb.

      1. I got a pound for $2.99 at he Galleria Thronhill 2 weeks ago. Costco is about $7.99 for 3-4 pounds

        1. I picked up a 1lb bag in St. Lawrence Market ( lower level - can't remember name of shop) for $2.99.

          1. re: sman

            If you get them where I get them, that's Harbourfront Foods. Lower level midway point from north to south on the east side of the building. I buy them individually since I don't go through large amounts. Soft as a baby's bottom, they are, in exterior texture and interior taste.

          2. Costco has them right now at the Billy Bishop Way store. I think the package had about 18 of them for about $7 or so. Loblaws has them right now too but I don't know the price. If you want to preserve them get the organic ones (since you'll be eating the peel where most of the pesticides are). Loblaws and Costco don't have the organic ones but The Big Carrot does and they are not cheap.
