    Fair Foodstand in the RTM is the best place. I purchased some from Mostly Mushrooms at the Doylestown farmers market,.

      Also Green Aisle Grocery has had them - and the headhouse market starts this weekend so perhaps there...

        Ramps were $23.99 a pound at Nonesuch Farms in Buckingham, PA today. They also had the season's first asparagus ($4.00/lb.).

          Do you know where Nonesuch sources their Ramps FamDoc? I wonder if they get them from Mostly Mushrooms...

          Culton Organics had them for $19/lb today at Headhouse. I think they have been similarly priced at Whole Foods recently.

            First time l had ramps was in West Virginia when there for a medical rotation in the 70's. You would buy them by the side of the road in brown huge shopping bags with dirt still on the roots for $3 per bag, netted about 15 pounds of cleaned ramps per bag. Times do change.

              Classic West Virginia ramp story. We lived there in the '70s and Comstock was already in the state pantheon for that prank.
