Where can I buy green papaya for Som Tam

beanodc | Sep 1, 2012 10:03 PM

I am not sure that I have the name right but I want to buy green papaya for that delicious Vietnamese salad that I love. Recently I bought a VERY large green papaye at the Shoppers at 7 Corners. It had no particular scent and was very solid. OK I thought, this is what I need for the salad. After 3 days, I cut it open and it was a perfectly ripe papaya. Where can I buy a papaya for my salad?
