Affordable Creme fraiche in Baltimore

I have been unable to find creme fraiche in grocery stores around Catonsville and Ellicott City. Today I didn't want to make my own and was passing by 83, so I stopped by the Wegman's in Hunt Valley. I purchased 8oz of creme fraiche for $5. Is there any place in the city or around the beltway with more affordable creme fraiche?

      I'm also one of those people who doesn't see much of a difference between creme fraiche and sour cream. But, there are those who will insist that creme fraiche is lighter and less salty.

      1. I usually make my own because I can't find it anywhere, but some days I just want to be super lazy, you know. :-)

      2. Trader Joe's has it, don't remember the price though. But it's probably a lot less than $5.
