fresh edamame

midtowngirl Oct 2, 2006 08:48 PM

Does anyone know where to find fresh edamame (not frozen)? I usually get the bags of frozen edamame, but they're not as good as the fresh edamame you get in restaurants and since they're serving fresh in restaurants I assume you must be able to find them somewhere in the city. Any suggestions welcome!

    I was suprised to find them at a little family run variety store on the east side of yonge street, just a few steps north of snowdon (for those of you not familiar with this area, it's the yonge strip north of lawrence, south of york mills) -- I saw them in bushels about 2-3 weeks ago -- not sure if they're still there.

      Try Hesei Mart in J-Town (Steeles, east of Vic Park on the north side). I'm pretty sure I've seen them there before. http://www.japantown.ca/heisei/e.html

        I've purchased them at St. Lawrence market before. Upper level. West side.
