Who has best selection of monofloral varieties of honey?

I was thumbing through an old copy of Saveur and came upon an article on great monofloral varieties of honey. Who has the best selection in the city? I know Kalustyan has quite a few but am curious if there are stores that specialize in them.

    I can't speak to best selection, but Murrays has quite a wide selection of honeys, and you might want to check DiPalo, though I'm pretty sure theirs are only Italian.

      Blue Ribbon Bakery Market has a good selection of honeys.

        Yes, I believe Blue Ribbon's honeys are made by an employee's family apiary in Mexico.

        Not a store, but there is a vendor at the Union Sq. greenmarket that sells honey and may be a good place to check. Used to see them on Saturdays... not sure what other days they are there

          Dean and Deluca (SOHO) sells more types of honey than any other store I can think of (including Murray's, DiPalo and Blue Ribbon, though these are also good suggestions).
