Not a wheelchair ramp, but the ramps that are part of the onion/leek/garlic family. I've read about them and would love to try some, preferably to cook myself at home.

I've asked this on the Rakeigh board (where we live), but you guys are closer to the areas where they are grown. ANY suggestions much appreciated!

I've always read about ramps in connection to western NC and east TN. Here's a website that appears to be for "all things connected to ramps": RAMPS! The King of Stink. They're actually known to grow in the Appalachian Mountains.

When I googled "ramp festival" the first listing was for The Ramp Festival - Mt. Rogers Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad next Sunday, May 15. There's a map on the website, but it's not far from Damascus, VA, a popular access point for the Virginia Creeper bike trail.

Yes, I found that site kingofstink.com most of it doesn't look like has been updated since 2008, though there was one page that was updated in 2015.

Someone on tge Raleigh noard also mentiined that festival. It's at least a 3.5 hour drive ine way from our house. I can't justify a 7 hour day trip for this. That's why I was hoping for sone in WS or Greensboro.

Thanks!

Ramps grow in the mountains. I lived in W-S for a long time and never heard of them grown or sold in the Triad, but I could be wrong. You could always contact the Piedmont Triad Farmer's Market and see if any of their vendors sell ramps. It's located off I-40 between Greensboro and Kernersville.
