Turkish Delight

I'll get straight to the point: Does anyone know where I can buy Turkish Delight here in L.A.?

  1. Persian markets. Q Market in Van Nuys has it.

    Q Market & Produce Market
    17259 Vanowen St
    Van Nuys, CA 91406

    1. Do you mean the actual stuff or the confection made by Fry's? If it's the former then you can find it in Middle-Eastern markets. The latter can be found at Tudor House, the King's Head or Continental Shop.

      1. Ok, I might add to this thread. Where can you find really good authentic Turkish Delight? I really like the lemon and rosebud flavours with nuts.

        1. Valley Produce Vanowen at Reseda NE corner - They also have the really yummy Persian ice cream made with saffron, rosewater and pistashio.

          1. I believe they carry it at Mashti Malone's on LaBrea.

              Yes, I've seen them there too.

            2. Actually I was asking about the real stuff (I've had my fill of Fry's for this lifetime). Anyways thanks for all the recs! I've been craving this stuff for years *drools* ;)

              1. There is a Persian market in Attwater/Glendale called "Whole Foods 4 Life" that makes it fresh from time to time. Please note, I'm not talking about India Sweets, it's very close to there, but it's half a block away.

                1. Went to Valley Produce this morning. Saw T.D. FROM TURKEY in Rose, pistashio, walnut/coconut, coconut, walnut and fruit, walnut/pistashio and coconut and plain fruit. So, go get ya some! :)KQ
