Locally grown jicama?

FYI I found some at the Hollywood Farmers Market this morning.

Locally grown jicama?

Anyone have a tip on where I can find some locally grown jicama, like a farmers market? I know I can usually find it at the supermarket, but I'd prefer to get it from a so-cal farmer if possible.

Muchas gracias.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I found them at the Echo Park farmers market on Friday afternoon and the organic Santa Monica farmers market on Saturday morning.

I was at the Hollywood market yesterday and nobody had them. But thanks.

I checked a couple of latin markets yesterday without luck. I don't think I've ever seen them at any latin market I've shopped, so I don't know where you're coming from. Give me a specific market where you've seen them recently, and I'll go there this week.

Thanks,

Michael

Couple updates:

I found a sole specimen while hiking Elyria Canyon Park in Mt Washington. I was bummed that out of all the weeds there, I couldn't find more than one measly lamb's quarters.

Also, went to the Hollywood farmers market this morning where one vendor told me she'd get them in two weeks.

I'm going to try foraging elsewhere. I'll report back if I find some.

ISO fresh aji limo peppers and peruvian limones

Thank you. I have pretty much resigned myself to using key limes. :)

I picked up some bearss limes from the Hollywood farmers market this morning. I'll see how tart they are compared to keys.

Considering their scarcity, I'm now willing to try aji limo in any variety---fresh (first preference), canned, dried, or paste. If anyone has seen any of these somewhere, I would love to hear.

BTW, I almost thought I found what I was looking for. I found some aji limon plants online. At first, I thought it was just a misnomer and aji limon == aji limo. In fact, some online sources do assert that they're the same. But I'm convinced after further research that they are *not* the same pepper, and I want the limo, not the limon.

Cheers,

Michael

Where did you read that key limes are the same as peruvian limones? The page I reference states they are similar but distinct, and that the former may be a substitute. I'm looking for the real thing.

Hmmmm.... I don't remember seeing it at Vallarta in east LA. I know I've never seen it at El Super in east LA. The selection may be better in the valley. I'll look again.

Not a cut of lamb. It's an edible weed, sometimes called white goosefoot because the leaves look like goose feet. Any sightings in or around LA?

I e-mailed Ricardo Zarate (chef/owner of Mo-Chica). I haven't heard back from him yet, but he's a busy guy.

I know he or his lieutenant Ricardo Jr told us that they get a lot of stuff shipped from Peru.

It may be time for me to stop in for some ceviche...

Thanks a bunch.
