Best exotic/specialty produce purveyors in Phoenix area

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone- I am an amateur cook who is working on a cookbook project that involves a fair amount of specialty produce. (Things like micro greens, edible flowers, wide assortment of mushrooms, etc). Does anyone know of a great place to find these things in the area? Or on the flip side does anyone know if LA Specialty Produce or Aztec Specialty Produce will sell to me as an individual (and not a restaurant/business)?

I should also add..recommendations for seafood/meats as well? I know Lee Lees sometimes has an amazing fish selection...but wondering where else those treasures may lurk...

Thank you in advance for any help! Cheers- Justin

Do you have a Restaurant Depot membership? RestoDepot (locations in PHX and Mesa) carries edible flowers, microgreens, etc. You'll need some sort of business license in order to get a free membership, but perhaps a friend or associate can help you out. Each member gets multiple bar code tags, which are required for entry & purchase. You don't have to show ID, but you do scan your tag upon entering. RD doesn't care who pays for the merchandise, just as long as you have a scancard at checkout.

Thank you for the help. Does anyone have any info on Aztec or LA Specialty Produce? I havent been able to get them to call or email me back. (Probably because I am not a restaurant )
