Where can I buy fresh chestnuts in LA? preferably in tWEHO, Bev Hills or Westside?

    Weather permitting, might also check your local farmer's markets.

      fresh in-the-shell inexpensive chestnuts can be found at Korean supermarkets. I know the one in the Koreatown Galleria (on Western & Olympic) has them right now.
      They also have shelled ones in small bags displayed all around a pillar between the frozen dumplings section and the kimchi.

        TJs sells them in the shell by the pound (in a plastic container in the unrefrigerated produce section) and shelled and vaccumm sealed in both the refrigerated section (in 6 or 8 ounce packages) for the new packaging or in a red box (also vaccuum sealed) in the nuts section.

        I'd call and ask the store though, because the availability depends from week to week, but I see them regularly from november through december at just about any TJs.

        HAving fussed with the in-the-shell variety before, I much prefer buying the shelled meats and using those instead.
