What are the best places to buy fresh truffles?

Hey all,

I was wondering what are the best places to get fresh black and white truffles (esp. French/Italian)? Are there any places in the LA Area with particularly good (and relatively inexpensive) fresh truffles?I know for Surfas,Beverly Hills Cheese Store and some others,but hope so there are much more fresh truffle sources...

Thanks in advance!

  1. Hi Chris. Particularly good and relatively inexpensive are in direct opposition to one another when it comes to most things, and probably truffles in particular. That said, there have been a few threads on this subject of late, which you'll see below. The best answer for fresh truffles appears to be sourcing them at some of the larger local Farmers Markets in and around Los Angeles (such as the Santa Monica or Hollywood FM's).
