Where can I get chervil (preferably on the eastside)?

Citerella hasn't had chervil for a while now. :(

    try some of the online herb shops

    most of companies have sold out on plants

    home depot
    whole foods sometimes have plants
    fresh foods

        Unfortunately, I've stopped by there and haven't seen any. :( I'll have to wait until Wednesday as there is one booth that apparently sells chervil but only appears at the Greenmarket twice a week. Chervil is so impossible to find in nyc. I might have to grow my own as you never know where to find them as most places dont carry it on a regular basis.

          It's not an herb I use with any regularity, but I know I see it occasionally packaged at Fairway as well as the odd Associated every now and again. Meanwhile I'm on the hunt for my own impossible to find calamansi trees somewhere in this city.

            my local fairway doesn't have it atm. :( Lowes currently has calamansi trees (they sell them as calamondin orange plants) You would have to go to Brooklyn for it unfortunately.

            I would call in advance though. Home Depot may have it too.

              Oh this is a great tip! If I'm going to Queens to stock up on frozen calamansi juice, I'm sure a one-time trip to Lowe's for a tree is more than doable.

            As I replied to your other query, the stand, Two Guys From Woodbridge have chervil Wed., Friday and Saturday at Union Square. You might check the greenmarket listing on-line to see if
            they also are present at other markets closer to you.

              yup. going to check them out on Wednesday. They no longer come on Saturdays though. Only Wednesday and Friday.

                Chervil is not only difficult to find in New York markets, it is also difficult to grow. Made even moreso by our super-rainy/damp early summer, which chervil doesn't like.

                In all the years I've had my herb garden, I've only been successful with chervil twice.
