Agave nectar

calburger Feb 23, 2007 03:09 PM

Anyone know where I can purchase agave nectar or agave syrup for home made margaritas? I'm hoping to find it for a good price.

    Rainbow, Whole Foods or any health food store.

    I have no idea what you mean by "good price" - I've never noticed a substantial price difference at any of the outlets where I've bought agave nectar. Agave nectar is expensive in comparison to other sweeteners but it has huge health benefits above other sweeteners.
    Frankly, its been pricey even when I've bought it in Mexico.

      I had found some at Whole Foods. It was in the section with diabetic and allergy stuff.

        The Whole Foods in Berkeley has them next to the sugar.

        Raley's and I assume, Nob Hill, sells it in the organic section of the market. Didn't notice price though.

          Also the Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley and Trader Joe's sell agave nectar.

            I saw three different kinds at the Bowl yesterday.

            I saw several different brands at the Alameda Natural Grocery. I don't remember ever seeing it at Trader Joe's though. What section was it in?
