they actually carry them in my local organic market. Maybe one in Brookly does as well?

You can grow your own. You can find a curry plant in plant shops that have a good herb collection. All you need is a pot, dirt, and sunny window slil.

Oh no.. Curry plants are notoriously slow to sprout..they're actually trees rather than annuals although I have a 2nd generation budding up from seed, they need a LOT of care..

Kalustyan's in Manhattan -- it has everything under the sun! I miss it a lot.

According to their website, they offer both fresh and dried curry leaves. Definitely go for fresh if possible -- as others have mentioned, they freeze well.

I live in Brooklyn. Does anyone know of a good Indian grocer?

Any Indian grocery will stock them.. They dry very well and the dried version can be used as a substitute for the fresh leaves

Where do you live? If you are in a big city, Indian grocer, of course. There are great ones in Chicago. Amazing produce.
