Red potatoes

Has anyone seen red potatoes on sale here in the supermarkets or smaller shops here in Zürich? I've tried looking for them in the Migros at Glatt yesterday, as well as Coop but no joy.

The only place I've seen it is Leshop online so far but I dont believe that there arent any red potatoes on sale here in the shops for the whole of Zürich! Appreciate any leads.

Thanks!

Re: Red potatoes

Do you mean red-skinned potatoes, or those new potatoes which are beetroot-colored inside? I would also like to try the latter. What are they like?

Sorry, I mean red-skinned ones - preferably Desiree potatoes!

Re: Red potatoes

I bought some at the Sat farmers market in Luzern. Maybe you can find them at a similar market in Zurich?

Re: Red potatoes

I find Desiree potatoes AL THE TIME at the Stockengut Farm in Kilchberg (http://www.stockengut.ch/) they are wonderful and tasty, always ust freshly picked from the ground. If you have a car, it's easy to get to!! Just right over the zürich/kilchberg boarder and up the hill! If you have kids, it's a great place to visit and then drink some fresh milk from the cows afterwards, or freshly made Süssmost!

Re: Red potatoes

my husband has friends who bring red potatoes from Portugal, they gave me some of them and are really good for fry. If they bring more I'll buy some they are much fresher than the supermarket. If I can buy some I send you some information if you are interested of course.

Re: Red potatoes

Any progress on finding these red potatoes in the last year? I haven't seen them at Migros or Coop... would LOVE to make some garlic mashed potatoes with them.
