Shopping in Chennai

Anyone know where you can reliably find fresh herbs in Chennai? I sometimes find rosemary and thyme but it's sporadic. I'm looking for a reliable vendor.

  1. Maison des Gourmets, Cenotaph Road, 2nd Lane (in the same building as the Toyota dealership) sources produce from Bangalore twice a week. They get fresh shipments on Monday and Wednesday mornings. I've seen them have thyme, sage, rosemary, basil, and thai basil rather regularly. You could also give them a call in advance to see what they have in that shipment. They also have the best lettuce selection, as far as I'm concerned.
