Poppyseeds on the Westside

smfoodie Dec 10, 2009 07:44 AM

Anyone have a good source for poppyseeds on the Westside. I know they are readily available in small jars at most sores, but I'm making a Hungarian poppyseed roll and need about 2lbs.

      I've been searching for poppyseeds for the same reason! Penzey's in Santa Monica has them in bulk and inexpensively.

        Penzeys on 4th (between Arizona and SM Blvd) in the People's Republic has plastic sacks of them.

            At least six months ago. We need one in OC too; Torrance is too far away. :)
