Of course I love loading up on produce in Chinatown or Flushing, but since I can’t always make the trip, I frequently buy fruit from a fruit stand Best Fruit Stand on University Place, in front of L’Annam. It’s twice the size of most fruit stands in Manhattan and offers better prices than most too. It’s run by a mom with 2 or 3 sons; they generally sell fruit, but sometimes have vegetables as well. Most of their stock is ready to eat that day, so occasionally you have to be aware of their goods being over ripe, but usually I’m very happy with my purchases there. Oh, and they’re usually wiped clean by 5pm so try to stop by early.
