Patak brand pickles - where to find in NoVA/DC

I've had a craving for the hot/extra hot lime and mango pickles made by Patak's, but all I can find locally (HT, WF, Giant) are the chili and garlic pickles. They're tasty too, but I want to round out the experience.

I've also visited numerou halal and Indian spice/appliance stores, most recently the ones on Lee Highway in the same strip with Caribbean Grill. No luck there.

Any recommendations would be welcomed.

  1. I don't know where they are carried regularly, but i'm sure the Giant manager would be happy to order some for you if they're already carrying other versions of Patak brands.

      Try Rodmans.There is one in DC on Wisconsin Ave and another in Rockville. They always carry the lime/mango pickles. Very yummy.

    2. Every time I see Patak pickles in a store, the next time I go there there is a different (very limited) selection, or they're sold out - you just gotta keep looking (this company needs a big improvement in their sales skills).

      Maybe you can find them more reliably online somewhere?

      Have you tried the Indian market in Skyline? (3800 block S. George Mason Drive)

        Thanks. No, I wasn't aware there was an Indian market there. I hadn't done a search of the board or other sources for suggestions of Indian markets locally - NoVA/DC/MD. If you know of any others, please let me know.

        Thanks again for the suggestion.

        I figure I'll find the pickles I'm looking for somewhere at some point. I suppose too that when I see them next I ought to just stock up; that stuff keeps and keeps and keeps.
