Suburban Marzipan

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.

  1. Are you looking for marzipan for cooking, or marzipan candy?

    1. marzipan candy... in nice shapes or chocolate dipped

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

          1. I believe Modern Pastry shop in Medford Square has it. It's the same Modern Pastry as in the North End.
