Gigante Beans

I'm looking for dried gigante beans in Philadelphia. Not dried giant limas, but the beans used in Greek cooking. I used to get them on Baltimore Avenue in Yeadon, but that tore is gone.

  1. I would love to find them too. After being introduced to them (prepared) a few years back at the Whole Foods near the Free Library Central Branch, I just now found them again at Weaver's Way Co-Op in Chestnut Jill (again, prepared ... Diviana brand).

    I have found them online for $4.25/lb via the Web site rakuten but would buy them here if I could find them.

    1. re: NYChristopher

      A former work colleague, who is Greek, says that they can be found at Astra Foods, 6430 Market Street, Upper Darby, and Euromarket, 30 South Sproul Road, Broomall, Pa. I haven't checked them yet.
