Where can I purchase ramps in the Monterey area?


I keep hearing of this delicious vegetable and Ramp Festivals and people foraging for them. So, my first thought it: Me too! Me too!

Do any stores carry ramps? Or is it one of those magical perishables that only chefs can get their hands on?

  1. Ramps are endemic to the Appalachian Watershed. Common as they are in that area, getting them in California is about as difficult as getting abalone in Tennessee. I can't even imagine who might be able to supply them in the Monterey Bay Area.
