Stile's opened its Ninth Avenue location in 1980. The market also has a branch farther uptown in Hell's Kitchen.
Prices at Stile's are shockingly low for its midtown Manhattan location. Here, a huge variety of apples, all $1 a pound.
For a relatively small space, Stile's offers a large variety of produce. These papayas cost $1.50/pound.
Endive, Asparagus, Brussels
$1.99 per pound is about the cheapest price I've seen for asparagus. The endive, at the same price, is a steal, too, and Brussels are priced just right at $1/pound.
Butternut, kabocha, acorn and spaghetti squash each cost just 99 cents a pound.
Potatoes range in price from $1-$1.50 for two pounds.
Mangoes, coconuts, plantains and yucca.
A dollar a pop.
In addition to produce, Stile's sells a number of staples, such as bread, grains and pasta. Their imported Italian olive oil is just $8/liter.
Dried spices go for just $1.50 a bottle.

A New York store has got to sell bagels, right? Stile's selection, from H&H, cost 60 cents per bagel.

Bulk walnuts are $3/pound; hazelnuts and almonds go for $2/pound.
Pita bread, delivered daily, costs just $1.50 for a large bag or two small bags.
