Although usually available in specialty stores and by mail, a Safeway in the ritzy Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC is selling truffles for $999.99/lb. It seems DC shoppers are paying for their zip code, though: not too far away in Baltimore suburb Hunt Valley, Maryland, a Wegmans was selling truffles for $399.99/lb. just this past April.
