    I would think that Alpine Village would have them. Maybe even Berolina Bakery in Montrose, but I would definitely give them a call. Schreiner's is a German Deli next door to Berolina, they may have it, but I would not guarantee that.

      I've had one from Whole Foods in years past, but can't recall if I have seen them there this year since I wasn't looking for them.
      I am a big marzipan fan too, and was happy with both the flavor and texture in the WFs stollen and the nice amount inside.
      Good luck!

        Trader Joe's has it in the bread section. Kinda hidden so you may have to ask.

          Costplus has it. We've been enjoying it for breakfast the past couple of mornings.

            Shoop's Deli on Main is Santa Monica has the largest selection of Stollen that I have seen, including some with Marzipan.

              Cost Plus, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Gelson's, Ralph's, Von's, probably How's, maybe Bristol Farms.

                  I gave a friend a stollen from Teuscher in Beverly Hills last year and they loved it. I can't say for sure that it was filled with marzipan, but it was a traditional stollen.

                    I just had a xmas Stollen at 3 Square Cafe in Venice.
                    I don't think there was marzipan though, but they may be serving different types? You should try calling them.

                        Funny you should mention Christmas stollen--my husband and son just brought home a loaf from Berolina's today. It ran about $12, by the way. They make Lucia buns every Christmas time, also, and I love them--fragrant with saffron and honey.
