Where to buy burrata cheese in Baltimore/Washington?

I had burrata cheese in Florence last year and have been obsessed with it ever since. Does anyone know where you can buy it locally? I live in Baltimore, but have cheese, will travel.
You're much more likely to find it in D.C. (or Philly) than in Baltimore. Either way it will probably involve placing a special order and a considerable wait. In Baltimore you should try il Scalino on High Street in Little Italy. They take regular trips to NYC to pick up bread and might be able to get Burrata as well. Make sure you tell them you want it on Monday afternoon. Fresh cheeses like Burrata and Mozzarella air ship from Italy on Sunday night and arrive in NY Monday morning.
DiBruno Brothers in Philly makes Burrata in house but I haven't the chance to try it. In D.C. you should try Cowgirl Creamery.
Also keep in mind that the Burrata you fell in love with in Italy was probably made that day. The freshest Italian Burrata in the U.S. wil be at least 2 days old by the time it reaches you.
...I'm pretty sure they sell it at the Italian market in bethesda - the name escapes me (cornucopia?). i think the article in the Post about them said they made it in house.
It's on the menu regularly at Dino in Cleveland Park/DC!
