Frozen conch meat and scotch bonnet peppers

Know where I can buy either in Manhattan? Or even online?

  1. I am not sure about frozen, but you can purchase fresh conch meat in most Asian markets.

    1. I've seen live whelks in the markets on Mott and Grand, but never live conchs. You can find the frozen meat from both, however, in West Indian markets in the Richmond Hill and Ozone Park sections of Queens; the conch is usually distinguished as "lambi."
