Avocado leaves

I'm looking for a place to buy avocado leaves in Fairfax or really any place in the NOVA area. Any suggestions? Or, if you know of any reliable online suppliers I'd be willing to consider that as well. Thanks.

  1. I was just reading a Mexican cookbook and wondering this myself.



    The Etsy ones look interesting.


    1. I know there are a couple of MX markets in Manassas. There is a large one near to Taqueria Tres Reyes. Actually mero mexicano and not Central or South American. I can't say for sure if they will carry hoja de aguacate, but they might, as it is not an atypical ingredient to have in a MX grocery.

      1. Old post, but just in case you are still looking, I saw bags of fresh avocado leaves at Lottes in Ashburn today. This is the first time I have seen them there. It may be that they have always been there and I just didn't notice.

          Thanks for the update! The Ashburn location is a bit far for me but perhaps the Fairfax or Chantilly location will have them too.
