Where can I find Almond Flour?

I'm making Almond cookies from a Food & Wine recipe. Do you know where I can find almond flour in Manhattan? Thank you!

    1. Trader Joes. You can make your own in a food processor; using some of the sugar in the recipe will prevent the almonds from becoming greasy almond butter. Stop the processor as soon as you achieve an even meal.

      1. I saw it at Garden of Eden last weekend. Eli's also has it.

          skip the giant chains (whole foods, trader joes etc.)and support a local market...
          Kalustyans 123 Lexington Avenue (East 29th Street) New York, NY 10016 is a good spot to find it

            With their mark up, I don't think they're really hurting for local support.

        2. Buon Italia in the Chelsea Market also has it.

            Yes, I got mine from there. Just make sure you get the almond flour that's further along in the back for your cookie recipe. There's Sicilian almond flour closer up in the front that's pretty astronomical in price.
