Where to buy pistachio nuts?

Looking for store in Chicago, preferably north side, to buy wonderful pistachio nuts. I heard the nuts from Turkey are the best, and the ones from California aren't so great. What do you like and where can I get them?

  1. Devon Avenue, Patel Brothers (Indian) supermarket, 2619 W Devon---I saw shelled pistachios there yesterday. If you want an array of specifically Middle Eastern products (you mentioned Turkish pistachios) try Al Khayam, 4738 N Kedzie.

      Terrific reply! Thank you Querencia!

    2. I saw 2 or 3 kinds here yesterday although you could probably get a better deal on Devon.
