    I was wondering where I can buy micro greens, sprouts, micro carrots and other specialty produce.

    I'm familiar with Whole Foods, Fairway, Citarella and other " gourmet" markets but they don't seem to have what I am looking for.

    What's your favorite place to buy exotic and specialty ingredients? I am in the NYC area.

    Thank You

    I rarely see any micro herbs for retail. check the union square farmers market tomorrow but, get there early stuff flies out of there.

    now for spices and exotic dried everything try Kalustyan's in mid-town east exact address 123 Lexington ave between 28th & 29th
