Keffir lime leaves: where to buy?

Any ideas in Chinatown or Reading Terminal? Also looked at H Mart in Cherry Hill, but they didn't have them, Thanks

      little thai market in RTM definitely has them. i always get mine there. you just have to ask for them.

    2. Iovines in the RTM is a good source for hard to find produce items. I've seen them there but I don't know if they always have them.

      1. Thanks to both of you for the replies! This is very helpful info.

        1. If Iovine's doesn't have it, check OK produce also in the RTM. I'd also try Asia Supermarket in Chinatown. For a sure thing, any one of the three supermarkets on Washington (6th, 11th, 21st or 22nd - can't remember which cross street) will have kaffir lime leaves.

            EDIT: Checked both Iovine's and OK produce last Saturday and didn't see any at either, although it was a rather cursory lookover.

              I bought fresh kaffiir lime leaves at 11th st. mkt yesterday

            2. Many places will carry them in the frozen section, so they're not always obvious.
