Fiddlehead sightings?

Has anyone seen Fiddleheads in lower Westchester? Last year, Super Stop N Shop at the Cross County had them, but no such luck this year.

    Mount Kisco Farms had a sign on the door this weekend that they have some. Call and double check though!

      I actually saw some yesterday at Grand Central Market. However, they looked a tiny bit past their prime and were about $7.50 for a small container (plastic wrap over styrofoam), therefore I did not buy them.

        According to the email I got they should be at the Pleasantville Farmers Market this Saturday. Newgate Farms is bringing them in.

          Just saw this in LoHud. Doesn't exactly say where except a couple of farmer's markets. (None near me, but could be near you).

          Will step up the search at least. http://www.lohud.com/story/small-bite...

            Up here near Albany I picked some up at a supermarket at 4.99 a lb. They do grow wild around here. One of my coworkers knows a spot.

              For what its worth, The Fair Way in Nassau county had them for $27.00 a pound on friday. Is there a FW near U?

                  Fairway in Pelham had them today in the mushroom section. Pricey at $7.99/quarter lbs but when you see 'em ya gotta get 'em.

                    Picked some up yesterday at Union Square. $20/lb. Vendor thought they wouldn't have any more this year. Finito.
