Where to find Diamond Crystal kosher salt?

Is this a speciality salt? I can't seem to find it in a local grocery store or even at Whole Foods Market. I hear it is highly rec. for salt & I want to get started using it soon :)

  1. I think I've seen them in Smart & Final.

    1. Try the baking aisle, or maybe the kosher/foreign foods aisle.

      It comes in a big red and white rectangular box usually.

      1. Regular supermarkets (Safeway, Albertson's, etc) in the Southwest carry it in the Kosher Foods section. The red/white/black box is about 12" tall and I usually find it on the bottom shelf. Keep searching, it's worth it.

        1. I believe distribution is regional with Diamond on the East Coast and Morton's more common on the West. They don't measure the same but do function the same so look online for conversions.

            As posted, I live in Phoenix, Arizona and have Diamond Kosher salt all over town. We have Morton's Kosher salt as well. I prefer the Diamond.

              In the Seattle area Morton's is easier to find, but some stores also carry Diamond. An 'upscale' market is more likely to have Diamond.

                In the Seattle area, QFC stores will generally have Diamond Crystal (I believe they have Morton's as well.) The once a blue moon or so I need to replenish my supply, I don't have any trouble finding it.

          2. I don't know where you're located exactly, but in New York, I've purchased this salt at Fairway in Red Hook, Brooklyn. I'm sure they carry it at the other New York Fairway locations as well.
