Best Cheap Unusual Produce (2008)


PATEL BROTHERS is a supermarket of Indian foods, smack in the middle of Jackson Heights' main drag. As you might expect, they've got top-quality rice, dal, and spices galore. Their real draw, though, is their very reasonably priced produce, which is so good they display it out front. They've also got lots of subcontinental specialties you don't see at normal grocery stores: green papaya, bitter melon, yard-long beans, and more.
