blood oranges- who has them in Westchester?

I found a bag of blood oranges at my local Stop and Shop (Ossining)... I've never eaten them before so I thought I'd try them. After devouring them I went back and there are no more. Is the season that fleeting, or have you seen them elsewhere? I'll be down near Fairway this weekend....

  1. Mrs. Greens Eastchester, DeCicco's Pelham. The ones from Mrs. Greens were a lot better. I'm not sure if they were the same variety, I think for one type the season is ending and the other it is just beginning.

    1. On Friday, they were at the Whole Foods in Ridge Hill. They seemed particularly good this year.

      1. I've seen them at both Fairway (Nanuet) and Stew Leonard's in Yonkers within the last two weeks. Wouldn't hurt to call ahead, though.

        1. Fairway Pelham had them the last few weeks. Nice, not bruised looking. Whole Foods in High Ridge has them, but much pricier.

          Whole Foods has gone insane with their prices. They were always steep but... I went in last week and actually walked out after 10 minutes the prices in general were so crazy. Store made mango salsa was $6.99 for less than 4 oz. Seriously the smallest size deli container was 1/2 full. While at Fairway 16 oz is $5.99.

            They are $2.50 a pound at Whole Foods in Ridge Hill.

                Maybe they changed the price on Friday.

                  I'm willing to bet they changed the price right after I walked out the door muttering like a madman how crazy expensive the prices were.

                  $1.69/lb today (Portchester, but I assume in all the rest of their stores, too.)

              2. I *think* I saw them at the Shop Rite in Croton a week or so ago. Certainly I bought them a couple weeks ago at Adams in Wappingers.
