Shad Roe

It seems a bit early for the season to be starting but I recently saw it on a restaurant menu so I'm wondering if the season is early this year. If anyone has seen it in a market in Montgomery Co. or NW DC, I'd really appreciate a heads up. This is my mother's favorite treat and her birthday is coming up.

  1. Saw it at Whole Foods in Rockville a couple of weeks ago.

    1. Saw some at Sniders in Silver Spring on Thursday.

      1. It's been available for about a month now. I get it at Whole Foods and Wegmans. Probably have it at Eastern Market too.

        1. re: Ellen

          Eastern Market does carry it in season (but call ahead) and in 10 years only once was the membrane damaged - I'll nick it myself before broiling thanks.

        2. Thank you all for your input!

          1. Not in MoCo or DC, but not far in AA County, Shoreline Seafood in Crofton/Gambrills has shad roe
