I just got back from Miami and bought the most glorious avocados from a farmer's market in South Beach. Nothing like the tiny Haas varieties available in NYC stores. Any thoughts on where I can buy some in NYC? My baby daughter loves them! Thank you!!!

    I see them all the time at Stop and Shop on Union Turnpike in Forest Hills/Glendale
    Near to where they have the ginger in baskets

        Fairway in Red Hook should have them

      You can find them in latino supermarkets and green grocers in Caribbean neighborhoods. I see them at Pioneer, at the korean deli, at Key Food. You'll find them. Dont' worry.

      Try slicing one over sancocho or some other soup. Yum.
