Grape leaves?

jjbourgeois Jul 17, 2012 05:47 AM

Anyone know where I can buy a jar of grapes leaves near Quincy. Milton Market stopped carrying them and Stop & Shop doesn't carry them. Any place within 20 miles would work for me. Thanks!

    If you want fresh, in the parking lot in back of the Clam Box at Wollaston Beach along the fence they are growing.
    Look for the smaller leaves, as the big leaves may be tough this time of year.

      not near Quincy, but all Armenian stores in Watertown usually sell them

          Within 20 miles any Middle Eastern grocery in Rossie or West Roxbury, Shawmut Ave Syrian market. I'd check yourmajor markets in the area.

            I've seen 'em on the deli counter in my Market Basket (Lowell), and I'd bet the others have them.

            like MABMAQ said

              Do you mean the MB deli counter has stuffed grape leaves? I could be wrong, but I thought that jjbourgeois was looking for just jars of grape leaves, ready to be stuffed.

                Allstonian, I regularly see jars on unstuffed grape leaves on top of the counter at the deli at MB

                  The deli counter is where MB displays the jars of grape leave, on and near the deli counter.

                    Good to know - I would never think to look there for them!

                      Market Basket has Levant brand 32 oz. jar on sale for $2.99 this week.

              Are you looking for stuffed grape leaves or just the leaves?

                Just the leaves Dave. It sounds like Market Basket is the place to go. I'll grab some this weekend. Thanks everyone!!

                Two suggestions.
                There is a great Syrian Market in the South End on Shawmut Ave next door to Formaggio. It is very well stocked.

                Also, I have seen grape leaves at To Dine For on Nantasket Ave in Hull. They have amazing Syrian food in addition to some grocery items. Maybe call ahead.
