Green tomatoes?

Where can I buy or order green tomatoes this time of year (to make fried green tomatoes)? Any suggestions appreciated.

  1. Not actually responsive -- as I haven't seen green tomatoes on shelves recently -- but I've had really good fried green tomatillos. The tomatillos, in my view, add a fantastic flavor. And those are probably far easier to find right now.

    1. personally, at this time of year, since there are no tomatoes on the vines left, i would go to a big store and buy the hardest red tomatoes i could find.

      but really… wait until next year: you're a wee bit late for this one!

      1. Local farmers markets have them now
