Where can i get plantains and yucca in Sheffield?

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

I'm trying to recreate some South American cooking.

 

Does anyone know any supermarkets/speciality markets where I can find plantains and yucca in Sheffield? maybe a caribbean minimarket?

 

Thanks!

Tesco & lots of other places sell plantain. If you go to Spital Hill they'll have it in Tesco, or the smaller supermarket up the road. There's a Carribean food stall in Castle Market, downstairs. I think I've only seen yucca sold as a plant.

Cheers for that,

yucca is a root, long with brown rough skin and a tough white inner.

Also called cassava more commonly here I think and manioc or manioca

Yeah, you can buy that in the big Tesco on Spital Hill too, I think cassava is a more common name here. Emin, further up Spital Hill should have it too, if you prefer a mini-market, http://goo.gl/maps/gcvp

Try Morrisons.

The one in Hillsborough is stocking a lot more "exotic" fruit and veg since they had a re-vamp :)

Whereas Asda at Chaucer seem incapable of keeping the shelves stocked with potatoes and onions.

Perhaps not great sellers in that part of town and they end up going mouldy!

Couple of places on Spittal Hill and Tescos round there catering to the local demographic.

 

Asda is a joke of a supermarket. It's like going shopping in 1974.
