Has anyone seen locally grown asparagus yet? Is it too early? I've only seen stuff from California so far.
We've had it here in NYC for about a week so you should have it this week or next. It's always a treat to have the first local asparagus of the season. Enjoy!
I'm out in Western Mass, and we've had it for about a week, so it must be popping up in your stores now.
More importantly, where in the Boston area can we buy local asparagus when it arrives? I don't think I've ever seen local asparagus at Russo's, which is where we do most of our produce shopping out of farmer's market season. Are the Somerville and/or SOWA winter markets my best option?
Verrill Farm tweeted 1 week ago about their asparagus going to be ready in 1 week - no updates yet. https://twitter.com/#!/verrillfarm/st...
Wilson Farm tweeted last Thursday their own asparagus was available https://twitter.com/#!/wilsonfarm/sta... However, when I went on Friday morning, all I could find was CA asparagus.
Safest bet is to call both farms before heading out. Russo's only have CA asparagus, I don't think they ever buy local ones.
