Where can I get fresh yeast in Seattle?

Preferably on the south side but am willing to drive...

  1. you can find 1 ounce cubes in most grocery stores and is becoming more and more available. i used to find it at the safeway down in columbia city. make sure you look in the egg/dairy section of the store since the yeast needs to remain cold.

    1. Good question! I was at QFC, Albertsons, and Safeway this past weekend but found nothing. I made a special point of going to these places since I thought fresh yeast was such a classic and these places carry classics. No luck. They said nobody buys it anymore so they stopped carrying it. Maybe that was specific only to the locations I tried (not Columbia City).

      I plan to hit up the nearby Thriftway, PCC, and Metropolitan Market this weekend. Why should this be so hard? I know, I know, shelf life, etc....

      1. I believe Madison Market may have some in their little fridge in the back? I have a vague memory of having bought some there at some point...

        1. i finally found fleishmann's fresh active yeast at fred meyer in ballard. its in the butter section to the far left on the top shelf (i'm 6'4" and i had to reach). it comes in 0.6 oz (17g) cakes. cant wait to use it! good luck!

          1. Any one know a location in the Bellevue/Issaquah area?
