where is all the rhubarb? raw at markets or cooked in pies

it's pretty much the end of the season and I have yet to see any at the farmer's markets or on many menus. i saw a teeny bundle in hollywood for $5 and should have bought it but i hesitated and now it seems that a taste may pass me by.

  1. Maude is doing a tasting menu with rhubarb. Went last weekend and had an amazing dinner. If you really want some, you may want to call them and see if they have any cancellations for this month.

    1. Good Eggs has Cherry Victoria Rhubarb for delivery on Monday

      1. I have been buying it at the Super King on San Fernando Rd. When it was first available this season it was over $4/lb. Then the price quickly came down and as of yesterday it was $1.79/lb.

        1. re: Sam D.

          Sam D. - I've been looking for it at the Super King in LA but maybe I'm just missing it? They have had it with the herbs in the past. Where do you see it?

          Anyway, Albertson's has it listed for $1.99 a pound this week so if I can't find it at Superking, I'll make sure to hit an Albertsons.
