Where can I find good candied peel and glacéed cherries to buy in Manhattan or Brooklyn?

    Good selection at Buon Italia, which makes me think Eataly and other Italian shops would have as well.

      Also seen them at Dean and Deluca in past years, but not cheap.

      I think you can find them in the Indian grocery called Kalustykian (sp?) on Lexington in the 20's. It's quite well known,so even tho I haven't given exact details, I know other will

              Sorry, hope it's not too late...
              These are specifically meant for making fruitcake:

              I've never seen them in Manhattan or Brooklyn though.
