Have you found horseradish for Passover?

None of the local stores in our area have horseradish (the red kind with beets), even though they have Passover food displays. I've been to Safeway, Cosentino's, Andronico, and Lunardi's (although Lunardi didn't have their display up yet, so maybe they'll have it the next time I go.) It's really a Passover essential, and one year, for who knows what reason, it was in short supply, so I'm starting to worry. I could probably solve this by going up to Mollie Stone's, but it's a bit of a hike from San Jose. Has anybody found it in the south bay?

    I know fer sure The Polish Deli in Palo Alto carries it. One block up from California off of El Camino.

    I always get my ... well, Easter .. beet horseradish from Saul's in Berkeley. They make it fresh and it is perfect. If you are up that way, ask for it. It is usually kept in the back and not on display.

          1. Last year I got mine at Berkeley Bowl, but that's a bit far for you to drive for horseradish. I'm surprised more places don't have Ba-Tempte - did you try Whole Foods?

              Actually I tried Berkeley Bowl, no luck, but maybe I was too early.
