Nuts!: Cashews, Almonds, and Walnuts

Other than Dean & Deluca and Zabar's/Eli's, are there specialty nut shops that sell jumbo whole, unsalted cashews, etc? Seeking the best lose nuts. Please advise. Thanks!

  1. The Whole Foods in Union Square has a nut bar where they sell loose nuts by the pound. Not sure about other locations.

      Unfortunately, these all look like they're sugared, salted, and/or spiced.

    2. Thanks, that's right. Too bad Eli's gigantic, whole cashews are so expensive. Trader Joe's has great packaged nuts. Wish there were nut factories just like we have candy stores and ice cream shops.

      1. try bazzini on greenwich st. They have lots of nuts and such.

        1. Bazzini Bazzini Bazzini - all the way!

          1. Kaluystan's in Curry Hill has a great nut and dried fruit selection.
