Where do I find Passover groceries in D.C.?

We're new to Washington and looking for a suggestion on supermarkets that carry an array of Kosher for Passover products. Spoiled by standard selection in NYC. All suggestions gratefully received.

  1. you would be better off posting this on the Kosher board. Someone would probably be able to give y ou an answer..

    1. The thread titled "Passover Coke" lists several kosher grocery stores along with several Giant grocery stores that will have a larger-than-average KLP selection. Here's the URL for that thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/692909

      JIRS, the acronym for the Jewish Information Referral Service, has a more complete list of kosher grocery stores. The first URL is the home page for JIRS. The second URL is for the list of kosher grocery stores.

      Many temples and synagogues also are making KLP baked goods available to their congregants from caterers. Perhaps, phone calls to several synagogues will identify the supplier for these orders and you can contact the caterers directly.

          As is Shaul's in Kemp Mill. The Reisterstown Road area (from 695 south for a mile or three) in Baltimore is another alternative. Also, the Harris and Teeter in Rockville has a very nice selection of Passover products. However, for meat and chicken, you probably want to go to one of the 3 Kosher markets in Montgomery County or to the Baltimore area.

            Interesting about your Harris Teeter. When ours opened up (Loudoun County, VA) a few years ago, they had literally zero Passover products. When I asked about it, I got some really blank looks. I think since then they have added some Passover products, but I got to Wegmans for most of what I need.

              We'd go to Wegman's for everything since my wife is a native Rochesterian, but at the moment we have none real close to us (Wegman's hurry and get the Columbia and Germantown stores built. The Harris Teeter in Rockville has a great selection as I indicated, but the other one close to us (Scaggsville - RT 216) has nothing.

              1. re: Bob W

                The reason the Rockville Harris Teeter has a great Kosher/Passover selection is it's located near the Jewish Community Center and a Jewish neighborhood....so the store is definitely catering to the community it serves.....just like the Shoppers Food Warehouse in the same area has a great ethnic/international food section because of the Latin American/Asian communities nearby....I live about 10-15 minutes away from both stores.

          2. Wegmans has a nice selections.

              Yes, for those of us living on the frontier in VA, Wegmans suffices. Good prepared foods and plenty of sweets.
