Exclamation Help me find fresh figs in Annapolis

This is a special request of those in the Annapolis area. I need fresh brown figs! I have left a note on the neighbor's door, but I think they will only be able to provide about 1 gal of ripe figs by this weekend. I need 2 gals of figs to make my grandmothers fig preserves and from that I can make her fig cake.
Why is this so urgent? I have a friend that was diagnosed with cancer and treated over a year ago. The cancer is back and she starts treatment again. I have always promised her that I would make a cajun fig cake for her, but for the past several years her trees have never produced enough brown figs to make the preserves. Time is running out and I need source for brown figs this weekend! If you can help, send me a private message through the board or via cyardoin "a-t" gmail.
If you have a contributing fig tree, I will be happy to share my grandmothers preserve and cake recipes or the result of my weekend cooking with you.
Thank you!

Re: Help me find fresh figs in Annapolis

Not much of a PM guy.

Janet brings figs home fairly regularly in season. Must be from either Fresh Market at the Chesapeake Harbour Center on Rt 2 at 665 or Trader Joes on Jennifer Road.

Good luck.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Janet confirms Fresh Market and recently the Giant on Bay Ridge at Edgewood Rd.

If unsuccessful with Dave's suggestions . You might try the wholesale markets in Jessup. Many have retail or pick up.

Cheers,
