Where to buy 'new crop' rice?

rworange | Feb 24, 2007 09:11 AM

From a top on rice a poster wrote ...

"right now it is "new crop" season. If you go to asian markets, look for the bags with the "new crop" stickers. The rice is so much better when it is "new crop." Many asians stock up at this time of year."

Ok, I know the answer is any Asian market, 99 Ranch, etc ... who knows ... even Berkely Bowl.

But really, has anyone actually seen this rice locally? Is the sticker in English? Is the sticker a particular color? Is there one brand that is better than another?

And more important ... Does it come in small packges, like a pound or so? Or is it only in big sacks? Do other markets sell it like Indian or other Mid-Eastern? If so, which markets have you seen it?
