Agar-Agar in metrowest?

I'd like to make some desserts with it. Where in the metro/suburban area can I buy Agar-Agar?

  1. I'm in NoCal and can't find it in a regular grocery but got it at an Asian market.

    1. Health food stores may carry it. I believe I got some at Deborah's Natural Gourmet in West Concord at one time. It's worth a call to ask. I'd also call Whole Foods.

        Debra's Natural had some recently, in the bulk spice section I believe. They're pretty helpful there, so ask if you can't find it.

        Off topic, but Debra's is a great place to get really fresh bulk spices for cheap money. My car smelled like spices for a couple of days after I bought just a couple of dried spices.

      2. Is there a Whole Foods near by you? They generally carry this.

            Not tin the Asian Foods section by the soy sauce, nor in the baking section with the Jello substitutes?

        2. Any Asian grocery store will have it.
