Finding edamame in northwest westchester-- frozen or fresh

My little A&P in Croton doesn't have them. I don't want to go hunting all around for this; are there any stores in Yorktown, Peekskill, Croton, or Briarcliff that reliably have these? Does Mrs. Green's carry them for example? Or the bigger A&P in Yorktown?

  1. I buy mine at the big A&P in Mt. Kisco. Frozen, of course. Bet Mrs. Green's would also have it.

    1. Mrs Greens, Shop Rite in Croton reliably have them!

        thanks Marge-- frozen at the shop rite I assume? I even have a coupon for that store that I can use :)

          Yes, frozen--don't know if they're also stocked in the "mainstream" frozen foods section, but I get them outof the small freezer in the "organic" section (at the end of the fruits/vegetables aisle). BTW, just came from there and "Greek" yogurt is on sale for $1 a cup (in the "organic" dairy section just before the aforementioned organic frozen section)--that excited me, but I guess I'm easy!

            thanks for pointing me in the right direction! It does get a bit confusing when things are separated. My A&P has the "organic" section of grains and pastas and stuff completely separate from the mainstream stuff. But no dedicated freezer section (yet). They do have the door behind which Morningstar farm stuff lives, but no edamame were to be found there.

            1. re: Marge

              got them at the shop rite yesterday. Thanks Marge!

        2. My wife says that she has bought fresh ones at the A&P in Yorktown Heights and at Turcos, though she isn't sure that they are always available at either. She has also found them at the Mrs Green's in Yorktown Heights.

          1. Is there a Costco in Northern Westchester? We bought a big box of them (with 6-8 smaller bags inside) at Costco in Norwalk... but not sure if there's one near you...

              no way :)
              No Trader Joe. No Costco. No Whole Foods.

            2. I've gotten the frozen ones in Stop and Shop in Ossining and I would assume the one in Peekskill would also have them. I've also gotten them in Stew Leonards in Yonkers (if you happen to be in the area). Good Luck.
