Key limes in Manhattan?

About to go out on a key lime run (pie, of course) - any advice on where to go?

  1. Sometimes I see them at Trader Joe's. And sometimes I see them at Chelsea Market. But I'd call ahead because neither place has them all the time. I think I've seen them at the Amish Market also.

      Just saw a ton of them at Chelsea Market for a fair price yesterday.

    2. Whole Foods in Union Square has them, now, and I saw them at the Columbus Circle location in the recent past. Fairway usually stocks key limes, as well.

        Thanks- got them at Whole Foods Union Square. A bit anemic but they'll do.

      2. The last time I was at the Fruit Exchange in Chelsea Market they had key limes. They were reasonably priced also.

          A key lime update - I found them sold loose at Union Market in South Park Slope (I assume they sell them on Union and 6th too, but I don't know.) Even better, I found a good-quality bottle of key lime juice for 3.99 at Jefferson Market. Works out well if you need to make key lime pie in a rush (this happens to me more than one would think)
