    1. I've seen it sold at the Italian Market in the Chelsea Market.

    2. I'm pretty sure my husband has bought it for me at Citarella, but I'll double check w/ him when I speak to him later this evening.

        As stated above, I've found it in the refrigerated section at BuonItalia in Chelsea Market in a small bottle. Good quality.

          Yes! They have it at Buon Italia! It is posted on their website. Thank you!

          Just talked to my husband (in Nicaragua) and he confirms that he bought it at the Citarella on the UES - it comes small packets and was across from the butcher counter.

        3. They have squid ink in small packets and large bottles at Despana too.
