I did a search and it seems local rhubarb hasn't been discussed in a few years. I got some fresh-cut yesterday at Griggs Farm in Billerica for $2 a pound. On the rare occasions when I've seen packages at Market Basket, or loose stalks at Roche Bros and elsewhere, it's been at least $2.69.
Still, it irks me to pay more than $1 a pound for what many people regard as a weed in their yards, and which I could find growing wild if only I knew where to look! What are you paying, and where?
