where to buy halloumi in sd?

I know whole foods carries it-but at such a high price, makes it difficult to serve at a party.
any confirmed sightings at a specialty or other grocery store?

  1. Take a look at North Park Produce

      1. Trader Joe's sells "frying cheese"... I don't know if it's really halloumi, but it can serve the same purpose.

          I think the frying cheese at TJs is juustoleipa and not halloumi

        2. I love that stuff so much, and it is so common in the UK. I always buy a pack wherever I see it! Recently I bought some in North Park Produce and a while back I bought it in Venissimo Cheese. So delicious!

            Vons, Albertsons, Boneys, Henrys Its a pretty commonly found cheese these days.

          2. They definitely have it at Balboa International Market in Clairemont Mesa.
