Where can I find preserved lemons and harissa? Preferably in and around Cambridge.

The recipes in the Times yesterday tempt me...

    Both are available at Syrian Grocery Importing Co., on Shawmut Avenue in the South End (a few steps from the Franklin and South End Formaggio).

      I would think they'd be available on the Mt. Auburn strip in Watertown.

          I've had harissa from Sevan and it was very good.

      I've bought preserved lemons at Whole Foods (Fresh Pond). Haven't looked for harissa but they might well have that too.
