Aji amarillo peppers, anyone?

  • 5

Does anyone know where I buy fresh aji amarillo peppers in NYC? Or maybe where I can get them in NYC or the internet dried?
Thank you!

  1. There is a lady who sells spices in the Grand Central Station food market who might have these dried. I was able to get several types of peppers that I was not familiar with from her.

    1. I have seen aji peppers at a stand in the Union Square market that only sells peppers, all different varieties. I would doubt they are there at this time of year though, not sure.

      1. I have seen these at the uptown Fairway but do not know if they have them now. You could call them and ask.

            i buy ajies, amarillos y rojos, at a bodega right on the kingsbridge road stop of the 4th train in the bronx (around 190 and jerome). however, have you checked for example the C-Town supermarket at Avenue C and 10th? I've seen fresh ajies there, they dont' look as good as the ones in the bronx but if you live downtown, you should check it out.
