Where to buy prepared pastry dough?

I'd love to know of any bakeries or specialty shops where I can buy prepared pastry dough in DC or Northern VA. Thanks in advance!

    I noticed some in Whole Foods yesterday as part of a holiday foods display.

      Trader Joe's carries both frozen pie dough and puff pastry dough. I find their pie dough harder to work with and find it easier to make my own, although as taste/texture goes TJ's is pretty good. Their puff pastry (season but around right now) is excellent. The only ingredients in it is flour, water, butter, yeast, salt and sugar. I find it disappears quickly, though, so stock up when I see it.

      Was there another type of pastry dough you were looking for?

        No, just a premade pie dough that was more natural than the processed stuff found at regular grocery stores. TJ's puff pastry sounds great, maybe I'll modify my menu so that I can use it this holiday season. Thanks so much for your response!

          The pie crust only has basic ingredients, too, nothing that I don't put in my home made pie crusts. Whole Foods carries Dufour puff pastry but it's far more expensive than TJ's and I don't find it much better.
