Di Palo’s in Little Italy, a go-to spot for cheeses and other Italian foodstuffs, also has a hard-to-beat deal on marcona almonds from Spain, Benjamin68 reports. He spied them recently at $9.99 a pound, “by far the cheapest I’ve ever seen them for in the city.” The same nuts, imported by Mitica, go for $16 to $18 a pound at such places as Murray’s and Whole Foods, he adds.
Benjamin advises going on weekdays at an off hour to avoid a long line. The earlier the better, MMRuth adds; the marconas tend to sell out not long after the doors open.
