All Things Ramps

It's starting to become ramp season in this part of the country--very exciting for this particular foodie.

I thought this thread could serve as a spot for people to discuss local menu items that might include ramps. But I'm also interested in where to buy them.

I frequent Dupont's Farmer's Market but have been traveling for the past few weeks. Does anyone know if they are for sale yet?

In terms of menu items, last spring Proof served ramps in their gnocchi dish. It was one of the best gnocchi dishes I've had in a long time (and that's saying a lot...gnocchi is one of my favorite foods.) Palena also included it in their consumme soup along with morrels. Mmmmm! I love the flavors of spring.
