I reside in Poughkeepsie, and I am in search of canned almond paste. Willing to drive to Ulster and Northern Westchester if necessary. Thanks for your help.

    I would suggest Ginsberg's. They are a major food service distributor and do carry almond paste. I think it only comes in a large #10 can, but keeps well in the refrigerator.

    Ginsberg's Cash and Carry
    Route 66
    just south of Route 9H
    Hudson, New York 12534

    Monday - Friday: 8 am - 5:30 pm
    Saturday: 9 am - 3 pm

      I love Ginsbergs! But a #10 can is really, really big unless you own a bakery. I always buy the tubes but when I went to my regular supermarket I saw that they also had cans of Solo on the shelf above, I had never noticed them before.

      a #10 can's not so big if you're making stollen to give to friends for the holidays ;^)
