Tomatillos - Boston / N. Shore

Sometimes can find them at Market basket or once in a while at WF but very pricey. Any 'green grocer' joints around that carry these essentials for salsa verde?

      I think Russo's usually has them. I also saw them last weekend at one of the Cambridgeport farmer's market stands.

    2. They are always available at Hannaford's in Waltham, as well as at the Indian grocery stores on Moody St. - which have the best price.

        There is a Hannafords on RT 1 S in Saugus (?) so I will check there. I will google 'Russo's' and see where that is.

          I don't typically shop there but I will check the one in N. Beverly.

        2. Harvest in Central Square today. Didn't catch the price but would assume it would be in their typical range: somewhat okay - not exactly egregious. They looked fresh.

          1. I can usually find them at Poblano's Grocery in Central Square, Lynn. They also carry canned tomatillos which is what I use when they don't have fresh and they work quite well for salsas and other dishes.
