In search of fresh fava beans

BigSal May 24, 2012 04:53 AM

I am looking for fresh fava beans. In previous years, I have seen them at Whole Foods or Kowalski's, but no sightings yet. I did see some at the Mississippi Market recently, but they looked liked they were on their last legs. I live in Minneapolis, but am very close to St. Paul, so I can go most anywhere in the metro area. Any verified sightings of fava beans would be appreciated. Thanks.

    No verified sightings yet (it's too early for true fava season), but keep your eye on Holy Land - the Central Ave grocery store. I have often seen fava beans there in the summer and fall.

      Saw them in stock at Holy Land today, $1.99/pound. Good sized, some brownish-bruise on them, but seemed sound. ,
