Where art thou, broccolini?

I love broccolini and can eat the stuff by the boat-load. Surprisingly I have not seen this available in many of the supermarkets I frequent, but I found some at the local N Quincy Stop & Shop 2 weekends ago for the first time. Sadly, they only had a few left last week, and I strongly suspect it was the same product they had out the week before, as the one bunch I bought started to wilt after only a day in the fridge.

Where else have you seen broccolini for sale in the greater Boston area (preferably somewhere public transportation accessible)?

    1. I usually see it at Foodies in the South End. Also, I always to buy it at Trader Joe's over in Cambridge off Memorial Dr.

      1. saw it the other day at stop n shop in malden

        1. I have seen it most everytime I have gone at the Roche Bros in W. Roxbury, and I'm with you, it's one of my favorite veggies, it has the visual appeal of rabe, without the bitterness, just a great veg
