Is there anywhere other than the North End where one can buy marzipan? Marias and Mike's both have it...but i don't want to fight the parking in the North End.
Marty's liquor store in Newton often has the fruit shaped marzipan candies. You can buy plain marzipan all over. I know the Stop & Shop on Watertown St has it.
Marzipan candy is actually fairly easy to come by around Boston. A few favorites:
- Cardullos in Harvard Square has a fairly large marzipan selection.
- Right around the corner from Cardullos is LA Burdick. Although chocolate is their specialty (notably their delicious signature chocolate mice), they make very good marzipan candy as well.
- The Danish Pastry House in Medford puts marzipan in seemingly half of their confections. They are all beautiful to look at; taste varies from great to meh. I don't specifically recall them carrying plain old marzipan candy per se, but it certainly wouldn't surprise me.
I believe Modern Pastry shop in Medford Square has it. It's the same Modern Pastry as in the North End.
