Anyone know where to get fresh, raw nuts in Center City

Tonyjlive Feb 9, 2007 05:06 AM

I'm looking to get a variety of fresh nuts and maybe seeds, preferably ready-shelled nuts. Does anyone have suggestions in Philly?

    Trader Joe's sells nuts, though I'm not sure how "fresh" they are - but they are definitely reasonably priced. There's also a place called "Nuts to You" on 20th btwn Chestnut and Market.

      Nuts to You is also on Bustleton Ave in the far Northeast. They have a wide selection.

        There's also a Nuts to You around 7th and Walnut.
        Sue's Produce has a nice selection of nuts and seeds.
        Whole Foods has a lot in their bulk section, which is perfect if you only need small amounts (like if you are making granola). Thank you.

          Nuts to You has it's own website with locations. http://www.nuts-to-you.com Iovine's Produce in Reading Terminal Market also has a lot of nuts too.

            Try Wricley Nut Products Co. in the food distribution center on 4th & Pattison Avenue. A little out of the way, but buying direct makes equals really great prices. My grandfather goes faithfully for Christmas every year for pistachios and chestnuts. 215-467-1106
