Seeking Parsley Root

jns7 Mar 1, 2012 08:47 AM

Over the next few weeks, if you see parsley root for sale anywhere in Brooklyn, please let me know. It's an ingredient in my departed grandmother's chicken soup, but it's no longer easily found. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that Rossman Farms in 3rd Ave and 25th St in Brooklyn always has it.

        Historically, I have bought parsley root at Eagle Provisions, if you ask I believe John will get it.
        They carry it on a regular basis atThree Guys from Brooklyn

          Thank you all! I found them at Circus, to which I'd never been - it's a great produce market. I hope to try out the other shops recommended above. In the meantime, it's on to the soup making!
          Thanks again.

            Glad that you found it--I'll have to check out Circus.

            Just for the record, I have found fresh parsley root at the greenmarket in Williamsburg/Greenpoint, at McCarren Park.

            However, the last time I was there was last summer...
