Hello–does anyone know where I can buy pea shoots in or around NYC? Thanks!

    Hong Kong Market, and there's a vegetable vendor on the corner of Chrystie and Grand that usually has them.

      I've seen both sprouts and tips at Manhattan Fruit Exchange in Chelsea Market.

          Stuart, the Wheatgrass guy at the Union Square market
          has pea green sprouts he cuts fresh and sells by the pound.
          I think he's there most market days.
          Across the way Windfall Farm sells them more fully grown. Both are
          there on Saturday and both are really good.

                If you go to the market on Wednesday, both guys are there.
                Stuart has the yellow school bus, and Windfall has the green one.
                Good luck!

                  Windfall Farm had pea sprouts today for $36 per pound.
