Sour cherries @ Ferry Plaza farmers market today

Lagier has fresh organic Morello cherries for $10/pound at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market today only.

Good supply at 8 AM, but they won't last long.

  1. I was just coming to post the same thing. I'd be surprised if they had any left by now. They were going very quickly.

    1. I wonder where they come from - my tree is just forming fruits now!

        Lagier Ranches is in Escalon, CA, in the Central Valley. I saw & tried the sour cherries, they are suppose to be good for baking. I saw them around 10am, the guy told me they'll only have it today Sat 6/1/13 & they are the only ones that sell it at the Ferry Bldg FM.

        1. So jealous. Sour cherries are so hard to find.

          I make pie of course and also preserve some for Manhattans.

            Well not that hard it turns out. Inspired by this thread I found some today at the FM. They weren't labeled as sours (why?) which is why they didn't sell out immediately. But I recognized them and bought them ALL. =)

              The rewards of being a sharp-eyed and experienced fruitarian!

                Plus sharp elbows and a perpetual sense of entitlement to the best the market has.

                  Which market btw? It would be nice to know where else I might find them if I miss them at the Ferry Building one year. Unless, like my mushroom-hunting friends, you want to keep it a secret.

                      Yes, Santa Monica today. Oddly enough Russian markets often have them too. Late in our cherry season they get them from Michigan.

            2. Folks, we split off some discussion about how to use sour cherries to a new thread on our Home Cooking board. You can find that thread here:
