Hoping to find a place to purchase freshly roasted chestnuts in the Metro Portland area. Thank you.

    Someone used to sell them from a cart at Pioneer Courtyard around Christmas. Been years since I've been there then, though.

      Also not roasted (sorry if this isn't helpful) but New Seasons on NE 33rd and Killingsworth has fresh, shelled chestnuts.

        Saw some at a nut vendor at Saturday Market this past weekend (not the Farmers' Market, the Saturday Market).

          They weren't roasted, but they were selling chestnuts in the sell at the Farmer's Market on Saturday - with great instructions on how to toast them at home.

            I've never seen them in Portland. You can buy them w shells at the high end grocery stores around town (Trader Joes has the best deal for frozen). Or you can buy them shelled at Williams-Sonoma in the jar.
