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

      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.

          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.

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