Phx Baccala

Anyone know where I can by Baccala/Salt Cod preferably on the West side? Thanks

    Not on the West side, but I've bought salt cod (in the wooden box) at Whole Foods in Scottsdale, and the Phoenix Ranch Market downtown. Maybe the Ranch Market in Glendale has it? I've also checked at the AJ's in Glendale, and they don't carry it.

      Sorry, East Side also. We usually get ours at:
      Andreoli's Italian Grocer
      8880 E. Via Linda
      Scottsdale, Az.

        After a lot of searching I did find baccala on the West side. There's a small store called Al's meats at about 111th and Union Hills. They have 40lbs coming in early next week at $11.99 per pound. This is also bar far the cheapest I found.

          Be careful - you might get what you pay for :)

          I don't know that it will be any easier to find under these names, but in the Northeast where I usually see it on Portuguese menus it is spelled Bacalao or Bacalhau.
