Tomato Paste in Tubes

Can't seem to find them in my local grocery stores (major chains & Henry's). Does anyone know where I can find it "live"? Otherwise, mail order will do.

Thank you.

  1. Hi... I believe they carry 'em at Surfas, in Culver City, along with other 'tubed' stuff, like basil pesto. Didn't care much for the pesto, though. Call first, perhaps...

    1. Williams-Sonoma. I just got some last week as I always keep a tube in the fridge. Good stuff too.

        Sorry, I should've mentioned that I'm in north OC. Culver City is a bit out of the way, but I guess I'll try it if W-S doesn't have it.

        Thank you.

          Try Claro's Italian Market. Several locations through So Cal, closest to you is:

          1095 E. Main St.
          Tustin, CA

          I believe they close on Wednesdays. I always seem to be in the neighborhood when they're not. :)

            For certain sure Claro's has it -- I've bought it in more than one branch of Claro's. Bay Cities also have it, and if you make it to Burbank, you can get it at Monte Carlo.

            Surfas online will take an order and ship. I'm in the San Fernando Valley and don't always want to drive to Culver City either.

        2. I'm pretty sure Whole Foods and Wild Oats have them too...


          1. I've bought it at Pavillions. But they definitely have it at Whole Foods.

            1. If you are on the westside I pretty sure Bay Cities carries those tubes. They also have very nice selection of dried pasta and canned tomatoes..

              I know Surfas has them too

                I just bought a tube at Bay Cities this past weekend.
