    1. Stuart, the Wheatgrass guy at the Union Square market
      has pea green sprouts he cuts fresh and sells by the pound.
      I think he's there most market days.
      Across the way Windfall Farm sells them more fully grown. Both are
      there on Saturday and both are really good.

          Do you think he'll be there tomorrow?

          1. re: tierdear

            If you go to the market on Wednesday, both guys are there.
            Stuart has the yellow school bus, and Windfall has the green one.
            Good luck!

              Windfall Farm had pea sprouts today for $36 per pound.

            2. Hong Kong Market, and there's a vegetable vendor on the corner of Chrystie and Grand that usually has them.
