ISO Wild Asparagus and Morels

I know there are postings on this board from the hearty souls who hike into the hinterlands with their rented truffle pigs and field guides, and I applaud the spirit of these good folk. But I'm not one of them. I'm not going to hack my way through bush with a machete and a fly-swatter risking the amorous punctures of west-nile carrying skeeters the size of helicopters for the bragging rights to exotic veg. I'd rather find reasonable purveyors I don't need a gps to get to. That being said, I looked for both of the above recently, and was shocked at the pricing. Twenty dollars per bunch for wild asparagus, and seventy dollars per pound for morels. This was at the Harvesy Wagon, a shop with the best produce in the city, with cashiers also well-versed in the field of mortgage brokering. Has anyone seen these goodies for more reasonable prices?
