Looking for smoked paprika and other spanish treats in the burbs

  • 4

I am almost out of spanish smoked papika and would live to find a place locally that carries it - the good stuff, imported, in the little metal tin. I though Wegmans would have it but could not find it. I usually order it from La Tienda or find it at specialty shops, but cannot seem to find it locally. Even better, if I can find a place that also carries good chorizo, piquillo peppers, iberico ham, I'd be in heaven :)

Usually, I find I overpay foir these types of things because I am stuck buying them at a gourmet or specialty shop. I'd love to find a local hole in the wall that carries this stuff!

  1. Well, I can't help with the other ingredients, but Penzey's carries smoked paprika. They have a store in Chestnut Hill.

    1. Lately I've been buying spices, including smoked paprika, at Adriana's Caravan in the Ardmore Farmers' Market. They have a web site: http://www.adrianascaravan.com/.

        I second Penzey's recommendation. It's very fresh and you can order online and have it in a few days.

          Also in the Armore Farmer's Market is the Ardmore Cheese shop (I think that is what it is called, I go the the one in the Reading Terminal and it is called Downtown Cheese). They carry good chorizo and the spanish ham, sometimes the paprika. Piquillo peppers are tough! I have found them at Whole Foods on South St, so likely they have them at other locations or could get them
