T-Pain might as well perform at the Greenmarket this weekend, because spring has officially sprung, and that means one thing for the CSA-loving gourmand: the return of ramps, morels, fiddlehead ferns, white asparagus, and the other seasonal delights that mark this fleeting time of year.

Committed foodies have been on #RampWatch for weeks now, foaming at the mouth for restaurants announcing their first haul of the goodies. Well, it seems like the wait is finally over, as our Twitter and Instagram feeds have been consumed with photos of curly fiddleheads and dramatic proclamations of love for fava beans and such.

For excitable locavores, it’s the greatest time of the year. But for those who think the spring veggie hype has gotten out of hand, it can be hell. Here, we take a look at some reactions from both sides of the issue.
