Salted butter from Brittany - can it be purchased in NYC?

We were in France and absolutely loved this butter on our bread in the morning. They add salt crystals to the butter which contrasts nicely with the butter. For the holidays as a special treat I was wondering if anyone imports this butter and sells it in Manhattan. Thanks.

  1. I have gotten a similar product from Vermont Butter Company at Zabars (I think) or possibly Fairway. If it is at Fairway it is near the cheese counter, not the other regular butters

    1. Is this the product you are looking for? This info is old but, hey, it's a start, and now you have a name to ask specifically for...

      1. I am fairly certain that I have seen this butter at Fairway.

        Fairway Market
        2127 Broadway, New York, NY 10023

          I am not sure which brand but I've bought Brittany butter like this with large salt crystals at Fairway (W 74th) within the last year.

          1. Thanks for those suggestions - will check out Zabar's, Fairway and Citarella.
