Fresh carrots can be found in the produce section of health food stores and supermarkets. Carrots with the greens still attached have the sweetest flavor; make sure the greens are crisp and fresh looking. Look for firm, bright carrots, without cracks on the sides or sprouts where the green tops have been removed.
Besides the long, cylindrical, orange variety, carrots also come in stubby oval shapes, tender baby (bunched), and in white and yellow varieties that are harder to find but worth the search.
