samphire, where to find

where can I buy samphire in the "greater Lexington, MA area'. I don't think I have ever seen it, in fact, I son't think I even knew what it was before looking it up. Found a recipe at that great site Gojee!

  1. There's an old thread about samphire here:

    Looks like it's well out of season for locally-grown, but Whole Foods should be able to get you some from the west coast.

    1. I've seen it at several Whole Foods locations. It's usually labeled as 'sea beans'.

          A few months ago. I don't get to Whole Foods very often. Sorry.

        2. Even here in France, most samphire( also salicorne or sea beans) most is pickled as season is somewhat short. When l was at Dean & Deluca we had it fresh in the spring AFAICR.
