  1. I'd love to know where you get local figs from! I know Ellwoods had some last month, but I haven't seen any lately.


  2. Hi there,
    My figs came from Bill's Produce. When I got my last week he had one overflowing pint of them for $4.00 if I remember right. But that was the only one he brought that day so he was probably already running low. He is at Byrd House Market on Tuesdays and South of the James on Wednesdays.
    Last year I lucked out when shopping from the Hanover Farms vendor. The owner, I think his name is Mike, is so nice. A friend of his stop by the booth to gift him some figs while I happened to be there shopping and when mike saw my face light up he dropped about 6 or 8 in my bag and regifted them to me. Gotta love the market.
    Good luck in your search and let us know if you find more.
