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

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

        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.

                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.

                  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.
