    Village Farmstand on Dempster in Evanston has them available for order. Just in time for the days they're open for pickup (Th-Sun).

    Carnivore Oak Park has them this weekend. Prices seemed shockingly high to me - something like $24/lb. On the flip side, they are loose, so rather than a bunch, I was able to get just what I needed for dinner - 6-8 ramps were about $2.

    I have a contact for ramps that can be transplanted —they are in clumps with dirt—$10/clump. They recommend 3 clumps transplanted in a triangle in a shaded, well mulched plot to encourage proliferation (they are coming from a large forested area that will be bulldozed into oblivion in the next year or so by a developer).

    The person sells ramps to Acorn Acres and while I can’t vouch for the transplantation success (I’ll be trying my first batch next week), I’ve bought them for the past for years and planted a few of the roots and they have sprouted as singles. Supposedly planted the clumps where they can connect in the center is the secret to establishing a true patch. Looking forward to trying it out!

    Pic (hopefully Ronnie will add) is of the regular bunches I buy from Acorn Acres who buys from the forager. The forager is in Chesterton. PM me if you’d like her contact info . . .

    Did anybody see ramps at the Evanston market on Saturday? I know Stovers have had them before, but I forgot to look Saturday.

    3 stalls have had them at the fist two markets - Lake Breeze Organic, Stovers, and Geneva Lakes. The bulbs on the Geneva ones are laughably small, basically just a white stem.
