Seasonal Produce

TopoTail Mar 7, 2012 11:20 AM

Want seasonal produce, go to Chinatown. I was in SF Chinatown yesterday looking for snow peas. They were not to be found. (Well, one place had large bags of poor quality ones.) I found my snow peas at Berkeley Bowl. (They were from Guatemala.) There were all kinds of winter greens available, including many I could not identify.

    Some of the Chinatown greens you couldn't identify were what snow peas are around here this time of year.

      22nd/Irving market has a whole case of REALLY FRESH, dark green snow peas on the outside display area of the store.
