  1. Mama's Hot Tamales in MacArthur Park has them-

    1. Tamale vendor at the Plummer's Park Farmers Market, Monday mornings in WeHo, has them every week.

      1. Link to annual tamale hunt:

        BTW the Northgate market near me in Hawthorne Always has pineapple, sweet corn, pork and chicken tamales. Shop earlier in the day for best results.

        1. La Mascota makes sweet tamales with pineapple. I tried to link to it, but it didn't work. You can find the relevant info in the above referenced thread.

          1. Gallo Giro has them sometimes but not consistently.
