Where can I find coconut oil?

I have read that pure, virgin coconut oil is a great for cooking and frying, but the only place I found it was in chinatown in a very dodgy looking bottle. Does anyone have a source in Brooklyn?

  1. any natural/health food store will have it, and i've even seen it at mainstream supplement stores like the Vitamin Shoppe. or if you head into Manhattan, Whole Foods sells a few different brands.

    1. I've gotten it at Fairway for a good price.
      You can find the Parachute brand in the blue bottle at any Indian grocer. This is the best (and cheapest) option if you want to try out a small size first.
