Help me find Tahini

Can anyone in the local main line philadelphia area tell me where I can buy tahini? I've been looking for it, but can't seem to find it. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place.

Thank you.

  1. I buy mine at Genuardi's in Wynnewood in the Kosher section. You can find it either fresh in the refrigerated section (where the hummus is) or in cans.

    1. You'll also find it readily available at the Whole Foods outposts in Wynnewood and Devon.

      1. I like in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area, and up here, I can get it right in Price Chopper. It is in the same isle as the peanut butter, where you wouldn't normally look, but they sell in in a can.

        1. Whole foods and most grocery stores.

          1. Trader Joes and Whole Foods carry it.

              TJ's in Media doesn't have it, at least according to the employee I asked... I'm not sure the Acmes around here have it. I'll have to try Genuardi's again...

                Selene Co Op in Media had it a few months ago, when I was there.

            2. I was totally surprised but not only does Walmart have Tahini at a really good price, but they
              have other ethnic food selectiions

              1. The Acme on Montgomery Ave in Narberth has it in the Kosher section in cans. This is the real Isreali stuff, very good when you add a spritz of lemon juice. Thank you.

                1. Wow that is good to know!

                  1. Whole Foods and regular grocery stores are so overpriced for Tahini. I get mine at Bitar's (10th & Federal). The brand is Beirut; its a gold label (hm, maybe silver) with orange lid. It's less than $10 for a huge jar and it actually has the date it was ground printed on it. The jars they have are usually less than two weeks old!
