  1. You can purchase almond paste at SURFAS in Culver City. Corner of Washington and National

    1. Lots of major markets also carry almond paste along with Bristol Farms, Gelosns, How's.

        Cost Plus World Markets have it, too.

          i think they've stopped carrying it. they now carry a marzipan, but that's a slightly different hing.

      2. Claro's Italian Market in La Habra... Not quite as far as Surfas for you. I was just there on Saturday and saw almond paste (among many other fantastic goodies).

        101 W. Whittier Blvd.
        La Habra, 90631
        (562) 690-2844

        I think they have multiple locations.

        1. Calico Cake Shop

          Calico Cake Shop
          7321 Orangethorpe Ave, Buena Park, CA

          1. nicole's in south pasadena has it, the good stuff too. on mission near the train tracks.

            1. someone said la habra claros went to the one in upland this stuff is like gold 8 bucks it may be easier to go that place in eagle rock

              1. In the past, I've bought Odense brand almond paste at Ralph's, but that was several years ago, so I can't guarantee they still carry it.

                1. Surfas has always had it when I've gone (and I buy it two or three times a year).

                  And they have the cheapest prices around for almond paste.
