A few years ago around this time, former Stranger food and drink writer Angela Garbes wrote a Slog post about the seasonal reappearance of asparagus, rhubarb, and nettles in restaurants across Seattle, detailing all the places to find these "tender spring ingredients that chefs around Seattle clamor for after months of root vegetables and winter greens." Times have changed, of course, but there's some comfort to be found in the fact that asparagus, rhubarb, and nettles are all in season once again, and many chefs are incorporating them into their takeout menus. Read on to find out where to get your fix of this quintessential spring produce, from Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar's asparagus grilling kit to Cafe Flora's rhubarb crisp to Machine House Brewery's Stinging Nettle Ale. If you're in the market for these ingredients for your own quarantine cooking projects, check out our guide to where to get local fruit, vegetables, and meat, including the newly reopened Ballard and University District Farmers Markets.
