Local source for green walnuts?

bayareabeagle | Jul 2, 2010 11:30 AM

Every year I promise myself I will try to make vin de noix, a red wine and green walnut liqueur, but it seems like something always gets in the way. Well, this year nothing got in the way...except my forgetfulness! Most of the mail-order sources I've seen indicate that their walnuts are ready in late June, and here it is already July.

I would prefer to buy locally in any case, but my tardiness creates an even greater need for a local source. Either farms or farmers' markets are fine. I am willing to travel to find them, probably as far north to Napa/Sonoma or Sacramento, or south to about Gilroy.

Has anyone seen any green walnuts? Thanks!
