Where is the best place to buy fresh chanterelles? Any where in New York City would be fine. Thanks.
Wherever you get them, be aware that the price has come WAY down the last few weeks. I get mine from DAIRYLAND (they have a website), a wholesaler based in NYC. The price per lb is $6 (thats wholesale, which is unbelievable!! and they're beautiful! You might want to give them a call and find out what grocers, in NYC, they supply.
You might also try Manhattan Fruit Exchange in Chelsea market, they usually have quite a selection of fresh mushrooms.
The best place to buy mushrooms in th ecity hands down is SOS in the east village Ave B Btwn 6 and 7th. As of last Sat. they had:
Chanterelles, Black trumpet (In the chanterelle familly) , hedgehog, blue foot, yellow foot, lobster, white truffles, hen of the woods, and some cultivated shrooms as well. They supply many resturaunts in the city and just opened a new retail space. Check it out.
2013 - Don Geovanny Gourmet. I found their website a few weeks ago looking for caviar, lots of cool items for foodies!
