    I do not believe there is any handmade or homemade phyllo dough available in SF any longer. The market at 16th and Taraval, right off the L line, has a good variety of frozen phyllo doughs, kunefi, puff pastries and yufka (a thicker phyllo dough, good for boureks). There is also a great variety of eastern Mediterranean food supplies (olives, tea, cheeses and produce) to wrap your phyllo dough around.

      I think that place is called Parkside Farmer's Market. Great place!

        I think I've seen it at Trader Joe's.

          Look in the freezer section of any large supermarket. Bi-Rite would probably have it too.

          Greek or Middle Eastern bakeries sometimes sell fresh, but the ones I knew of closed.

            Phyllo lives with the frozen puff pastry sheets and shells in your grocer's freezer aisle. Athens is the brand that I've seen in both the leaves and in mini shells.

              Frozen in almost every supermarket.
