Rainbow carrots...South Shore to the Cape?

CapeCodGuy Dec 11, 2012 06:03 PM

Title says all. Would like to add these to my Christmas menu. Any ideas? Outside of Sid Wainer in New Beige, I'm at a loss. I tried a few of the local produce guys and they can get me a case.....lol. Just cooking for 10.

    I'm at the other end of the state, where I pick up rainbow carrots at farm stands or at Guido's in the off season. If you don't want to share the rest of the carrots with the horses, could you share them with some neighbors? Good luck.

      Sid wainer outlet in New Bedford - call them first - but they definitely carry them.

          Did you try the Market Basket? They seem to have a great variety of veggies, give them a call; they say they can get anything you don't see and will order it for you. I just love, love that store, we drive to and from it in Cape season but now drive down from Scituate because it's so wonderful.

            Thanks for the thought! Yes, went today actually and no rainbows. Like you, I LOVE that store and will only go to Stop and Shop or Shaw's kicking and screaming.

              Did you try Whole Foods in Hingham? Cape Cod Organic Farm distributed some earlier this fall as part of the CSA share, but I doubt they have any left now.

            I've been able to get them at Windfall Market in Falmouth fairly often. Give them a call before you make the trip. Love the rainbow carrots.

                  Glad I could help! They do have terrific pastries. They also carry quite a bit of produce from local suppliers which is always nice to see and their staff is super friendly.

                Buy the case, share some with the horses?

                I've learned to grab it when I see it.
