Where to Buy Colombian Groceries?

We just returned from a vacation in Colombia and am craving some of the foods we tried. Does anyone know of a grocery store in San Francisco where we can buy arequipe & obleas and coffee candy? Thanks so much!

  1. Evergreen Supermarket, 2539 Mission, and Delicias Latinas, 3127, have some Colombian stuff.

      Delicias Latinas is soooo closed and gone. I wanted to stop by a few months ago and what is there now is either some sort of parole or drug rehab place.

    2. A number of Latin/Mexican markets in the East Bay carry Colombian items including arequipe, pan de yuca, chorizos santandereanos, arepa flour, titote and other items. Mercado Mi Pueblo comes to mind (several locations). I am not certain about which places in San Francisco may offer the same.

      1. You can try Casa Lucas Market 2934 24th Street. I go to the one in Hayward and they do carry quite a few Colombian and Salvadorean items. Or there are some online websites too, but you said San Francisco area.
