Has anyone seen dragonfruit in or near The Valley

has anyone seen dragonfruit anywhere in or near the valley? I have checked the usual suspects 99 Ranch Market....seafood city..etc...any ideas or does anyone know for sure when it will be available in our area?

  1. If you're going to find it, there's no better place than the ones you listed. I saw some dragonfruit at the Ranch 99 down in San Diego this week.

    1. In a valley, but not THE Valley...sorry.

      We saw lots of them a week ago at 168 Market (1421 E. Valley Blvd. in Alhambra). Although I can not remember the price, their produce prices at 168 are usually very reasonable.

        In the LA Food Universe, the SGV is *THE* Valley. :-)

          And THE valley is the wasteland (especially the Porter Ranch/ Granada Hills area)! There was some dragonfruit at the Galleria market on Reseda.

            Duh...I don't know what I was thinking!!!!

        2. Galleria on Devonshire/Reseda sometimes has it. I have also seen it at Sprouts in Granada Hills a couple times.
