Unpitted prunes

Hi folks. Quick question: Does anyone know where to get unpitted prunes in New York? A friend needs them for a recipe. I seem to recall a couple of different places folks have discussed here in Brooklyn that seem like they might be possibilities but whose names I've forgotten. Anyone seen them in Manhattan?

  1. Grace's Marketplace has prunes from Agen (the town in Franch known for prunes)...the best!

    1. Just bought some Prunes d'Agen from Fairway yesterday on the UWS - in bulk - I think they were $1.99 a pound, which seemed very cheap.

        There is a prune clafouti in one of the Patricial Wells books that's wonderful! Esp with Prunes d'Agen....

          That sounds like a great price! They were almost that much near Agen last month! I need to get over to Fairway soon.

        2. Thanks so much. That was lightning fast.

          1. They're more like $4.99/lb but they're fantastic.
