They were right. Margate has become more and more sparse in the last year. Not sure if it's because it's becoming more popular, or if penzance/stonehaven supplies have been low and Margate is the next favorite.Actually, I just pulled the trigger on a pound of Margate ten minutes ago. Worth trying if you're interested.
I don't know how scarce Margate is. SmokingPipes told me they dont' get Margate often and when they do, it is a small allotment. The rep said I should jump on it.
