Tomatos Verdes and serrano chiles

Anyone know where I can get this Mexican produce in Manhattan? I'm hoping to make some green enchiladas from scratch on Saturday. Hell's Kitchen or Lincoln Square area would be good, but a subway ride is fine too.

    And in the event that it gets impractical to do from scratch, what kind of canned green enchilada sauce do all you tex-mex fans use in Manhattan? My favorite isn't distributed here.

        Tomates verdes are tomatillos. In Hell's Kitchen you can get them at the grocery store by Port Authority. UWS you can get everything at Fairway or Western Beef.

          I don't know where Lincoln Square is, but Amish (Farms Market, or something like that) on 9th in the low 50s should have both, too. A lot of the corner bodegas on Ninth Ave between 42nd & 57th probably have tomatillos & jalapeños, if not serranos.
