Gefilte Fish (fresh/homemade) - Where to find in Bucks Area / Philly ??

Can anyone recommend a store or deli
the closer to New Hope / Bucks county the better
that sells fresh (not in a jar) gefilte fish by the piece
all year round (not just for holidays) ???

Without running to Zabars in NYC.....

  1. I know that there is a place in the northeast section of Phila. that makes it's own gefilte fish. Will ask around and let you know where it is.I think they only make it for holidays, though. It's fun to make it at home if you have the stomach for it ( and you don't mind your house smelling a little like an aquarium for a while). You buy the fish already ground to your specs at the fish monger (hope that he is a lanzman).My bubby always kept a fresh carp swimming in the bathtub at holidays so she could kill it and chop it in her special chopping bowl herself.
