Hey, where can I buy some Key Limes downtown NYC?

  • a

I've got a recipe for key lime pie but cannot find Key Limes. Dean & DeLuca doesn't even have 'em and I'm even wiulling to pay good money! Any suggestions?

  1. There is a really great bottled Key lime juice from
    Florida--at one time Zabar's sold it but maybe D&DD
    would have it. It made awesome margaritas and was not
    cheap, being pure Flordia key limes. Clear bottle,
    white label. Good luck!

      Thank you so much, I was beginning to feel like a big loser when no one responded to my posting! Thanks for the tip, I'm gonna try to make a low-fat version of a Puerto Rican recipe for this classic fave using Carnation's new Non-fat condensed milk. I'm keeping the fat and calories though for the buttery graham cracker crust -- I gotta keep up my Jennifer Lopez-like figure!

    2. The produce store inside Chelsea Market (9th Avenue between 15th and 16th Streets) from time to time carries small bundles of key limes. I've purchased them several times.
