  1. Jackie's -1203 E 233rd St, Bronx, NY 10466 (bakery, patties)
    The Feeding Tree - 892 Gerard Ave # 161, Bronx, NY 10452 (jerk, patties, etc)

    Folks working at these two places might be able to direct you to a grocer.

      The Feeding Tree has delicious jerk but alas it's been years since it's been made on an outside grill. Not too far away from there is the Concourse Bakery, which makes their own baked goods, and has fantastic (though super greasy) spicy carrot cake: I prefer the jerk chicken at the Feeding Tree. Neither place will get you ackee, breadfuit, etc.

        there is a small bodega on kingsbridge road and jerome (it is over K.R, one block west of the elevated station) that carries breadfruit (but in my opinion the breadfruit in nyc is never in good condition, i never buy it here), you could also find there nice salted fish (go for the Gaspe), ackee (the dont always carry it, just ask them). if you're interested they also carry jobos, malanga, yautia amarilla, apio and ├▒ame. for oxtail, there are several butcher shops with oxtail in the area, just ask around, oxtail is easy to find. there is also a bodega on bway and 231 with nice oxtail but i ve bought good oxtail near the K.R. bodega so you wouldnt need to travel much for that, just ask there where is the nearest carniceria with good rabo.

    2. Surprised there's been no mention of the shops along White Plains Road between
      E 233rd street and E 242nd street. There are several fruit and vegetable stands there, and the neighborhood supermarkets are also well stocked with Caribbean foods. Most of the residents in that part of the Bronx are from the Caribbean and they shop locally because they can. : ) If your needs are met, no need to travel far I suppose.
