    Sahadi in Brooklyn has had them in the past.

    The only other place I've seen them still in their pod was in Westchester county at a Mexican produce stand. Never seen them anywhere else. If you know of any Mexican neighborhoods, you could always try there first. Just remember to ask for "garbanzos".

      Don't know whether Sahadi has them or not but last week I saw them at the greengrocer that is on the same block.

        saw them today all over jackson heights in all the indian grocery stores there, $2.49 a pound was the going rate, picked up a bag myself and will look at some of the info on the gothamist page. makes sense to find them at indian markets, they're "green channa."

          I saw them this weekend at the produce section of the Arthur Avenue Market in the Bronx.
