Shad roe

Has anyone found shad roe or soft shell crabs around Boston grocery stores in the last few days? This winter has been so cold, am hoping they're late.

    Saw shad roe at the WF by MGH last week.

    Bought some fresh sardines that grilled up very nicely.

    Too soon for soft shell crabs.

      I think shad roe begins to become available now from southern Atlantic states


      but the big NE festivals are around April/May

          new deal had shad roe from the chesapeake last week, and has had it for a few weeks. season down there is early which seems hard to imagine since we remain blocked by filthy icebergs on every corner.

              Bought some from the fish monger in Huron Village on Friday. It was delicious.

                Brighton Fishmarket has it. They featured it in their newsletter this week.

                  Saw both at Wegman's Chestnut Hill this morning (May 3). At 8:30 not crowded at all.

                    Court House Seafood and New Deal ( both on Cambridge St, in Cambridge ) have had it for a few weeks
