tell us where to find chiles

  1. I purchased some Hatch Green Chili from Harris Teeters in Fayetteville, let it “sit” on my kitchen table for 4 days, some of them even turned a beautiful red. And my kitchen smelled wonderful! After this, I roasted them in the barbecue grill. We had some the other night and they were nice and hot! My head was sweating and I am not a chili wimp!

  2. Don’t bother with the “hatch” chili being roasted at Wegmans. I actually don’t think it’s hatch, I think they’re roasting Anaheim. There is no spice at all and I have the x-hot. I did buy some at Harris Teeter and roasted myself, this chili seems legit.

    1. I found the same situation.

      Being from New Mexico this was a great disappointment. The stuff I got at Teeter was also quite bland. All in all, I probably won’t do this again… what a letdown.

      I brought some Hatch Hot back from Albertsons in California and it was indeed the real thing.

  3. Harris Teeter was a pleasure to meet with on Saturday. I”m not sure they ever eat a Hatch Chile but really cared about providing me with best product they could. Thanks for providing a list of great providers

    1. I called the Harris Teeter in Charlotte NC about the roasting Sat Aug 14. They said the health dept did not approve the roasting so it’s been canceled.

      1. HT will be roasting at

        1. Anyone know of any places selling chile this year near(ish) the Raleigh area? Willing to drive and roast my own if needed!

            1. Mistie Michelle Mayfield

              Wegmans at 1200 Wake Town Dr, Raleigh confirmed they will be roasting from 10-4 on August 20-22, 2021. I justed called them to confirm!

                I got a case I roasted medium heat peppers from wegman’s but no way I can use all of these! Anyone want half a case? in Clayton, NC!

              2. 9/2/2020 I just scored green chile at my HT in Clayton (Flowers). There was a small display of it. I told the veg manager I would need about 10 lbs and asked if there was a roasting event. He had no idea what I was talking about and brought a box out that was about half full. It was “Melissa’s” and mild. I picked through and bought 6 lbs. The mild will be fine as I will cut it with last year’s stash I got from home that about melted my face off!!
                I recommend to just get in the car and hit every HT until you find some and then ask what they have in the back. The box I went through had some that were getting a couple of spots. I don’t think they know they have “GOLD” on those vines, get them out of the wet freezr box! Happy hunting until next season!! Now it’s fall, y’all!!

              3. Just bought some fresh hatch green chile at the Fresh Market on Merrimon in Asheville. Have to roast it yourself.

              4. Roasting TODAY and TOMORROW in Durham! I was just at the Harris Teeter on Hillsborough Rd near Ninth St (be careful, there is a second location on Hillsborough that did not appear to be roasting) and they were selling freshly roasted Hatch chiles today– and they said they would be there tomorrow as well, 8/29-8/30.

                1. Boy I wish someone was headed westbound that could return with some Hatch. The North Carolina Chile fans are crying for a good Roaster.

                2. Harris Teeter has been selling hatch Chile for several years. Last year they even had a roaster. You just have to watch for it. Should be soon though.

                    1. Found out Freddy’s restaurants are temporarily selling Hatch Green Chile cheeseburgers. Not the same as getting one in NM, but it definitely hit the spot! I will be going back. Hope you find some.

                    2. I’m a NM here in NC as well! Where are you from? Silver City here! I’m going to get my Hatch Chile fix on this week!

                    3. Right now (9/13/2019) all NC Publix stores have 18 oz bags of fresh Hatch Chiles for $3.99. I checked several stored in Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh, which all had them. Limited time only.

                      1. Publix currently (9/12/2019) has fresh Hatch chiles, sold in 18oz bags for $3.99. This is a seasonal order, so limited supply. I checked stores in Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh area, which all had them.

                      2. Woo-hoo. The fresh market in chapel hill will roast the chili. They have hot and mild in right now but you need to call ahead to get it roasted.

                        1. Where are you located? I’m going to Charolette this weekend or next for some. Let me know if you want and I can pick yours up too. 7193041974

                      3. Harris Teeter always has a roast every year but they were cancelled at the two Raleigh locations. Charlotte is the only place offering this in 2019…

                        1. I just found out that the entire Triangle will be skipped by HT this year. Which sucks. The closest to Raleigh is Fayetteville and they are roasting in Charlotte THREE times. Which also sucks.

                      4. Harris Teeter Grocery stores in NC VA SC are having Hatch Chile roasting events starting Aug 2019. They have fresh Hatch Chiles at all locations while they are in season but only roasting event at certain locations. Check their Facebook page. Also the produce manager at any Harris Teeter will order you as many as you want $1.29 per pound. I’m just a fan and don’t work for them so call them or check Facebook.

                      5. Fresh Market and Harris teeter in Fayetteville. Fresh Market does roast them when in season. Also I did find some frozen ones at Trader Joe’s in Cary, I believe they carry that all year.

                          1. Harris Teeter usually starts selling them in August as they come into season. If you sign up for their email they will email you the date their roasting events are but usually in August the last few years.

                        1. Just discovered this site and see that you will be about 5 miles from me on Saturday. Roasters too, this is like hitting the lottery Harris Teeter, I will see you on Saturday.

                          Off to buy a lottery ticket now, this could be a sign (fingers crossed)

                        3. My husband goes every year to a Harris Teeter in NC to pick up boxes of already roasted green chili’s do you know when and where the next 2018 event will be thanks!

                          2. Harris Teeter has been carrying it these last few years and last year they had a traveling roaster who went from town to town so you could get your boxes roasted! The flagship in Wilmington on Oleander had this last year, you might want to call and talk to the produce dept, they might have an idea when/where this is happening in NC this year.

                            1. Do you know where the roasters are? Any remotely close to either Charlotte or Hickory?
                              Always bought 50 pounds in New Mex- miss is so much. That canned stuff does not cut it!!!

                          3. I lived in Wyoming always had hatch chili moved to NC i can not find any hatch chili I miss having it around.

                              1. Pinehurst?? Harris Teeter?? I lived in Alamogordo for 15 years & there’s nothing like the smell of Hatch green chilies roasting yummmm!!!
