Where to buy quince?

I love getting cheese platters at restaurants but when Im at home its not the same because Im missing the quince. Is there somewhere I can buy the ones they have in restaurants in the Mid La area?

  1. I assume you mean quince paste? Fresh quince is only available a few months a year and isn't usually eaten raw, I don't think. It should be available at any gourmet market -- Cube, Surfas, Monsieur Marcel, Cheese Shop of Beverly Hills, Whole Foods, etc. I even found some at a much lower price at Fresh 'n Easy.

    1. saw them at Whole Foods last year. They're not in season now.

      1. Bought some from Whole Foods 2 weeks ago

        1. Any Persian market will have them. Just saw some at Star market on SM blvd. west of Bundy.

          1. saw them at Jons market for $1 something a lb
