I knew thyme is popular this time of year, but i figured sage would be also, and each store had shelves and shelves of sage ( and all the others mentioned).
That's surprising. I had a similar experience a couple of years ago when I couldn't find fresh sage for Thanksgiving.

what annoys me most, is I used the thyme a few days earlier. I had about 1 1/2 times more than what I needed. I didnt feel like keeping a practically empty container in the cupboard, so I just dumped it all in. If I would have known there was a Thyme shortage in this area, I would have conserved. I also grew it in the garden this year, but the oregano kinda squeezed it out. And as mentioned early in the thread, there was no way I was spending $8 for it. Price gouging bastards.
