Why is rhubarb so expensive in the N.Y. area...

gutreactions | May 5, 2008 06:16 AM

We enjoy creating special desserts and compotes with rhubarb, but have been astounded at the prices for it at markets in the N.Y. area ( we're in Westchester)...during a recent trip to D.C. however we found it at the bustling Eastern Farmers Market at half the price and we stocked up to bring home and shared it with other family members...Is this just another food inflation sign...what's up?
