Does anyone know of a source for raw sugar cane sticks--either online or in the NYC area?

    A well-stocked Mexican, Puerto Rican or South American market shoud have them. Have you looked for such in the Yellow Pages?

      Hi - we've moved this to the General Topics board, where on line sources are discussed. The OP is welcome to post a query on the appropriate NYC area board for sources there, which are off topic here.

          Turbinado sugar is raw cane sugar.
          You can probably find it at upscale supermarkets, health food stores, and on line:

          In most places, the harvest will not be taking place for a few months yet. Depnding on the latitude, usually Aug - Nov will yield more sources.

          Still, I've seen sugar cane sticks at Whole Foods, though usually in the very late Summer - Fall. Do not know if they are in NYC.
