    Byerly's carries the fruit shaped sweets as well as the paste. I usually make an annual trip to Byerly's to pick up a box of marzipan fruits. Bissinger's also has them, according to their catalog, but the price is pretty steep. I think you can get marzipan paste for cooking just about anywhere...Cub, Rainbow, the co-ops, etc.

      There used to be a small German shop off of White Bear Lake Avenue and 694. There were a lot of marzipan possibilities. I tried to google it, but I didn't come up with any results. Cost Plus also used to have a lot of German marzipan.

      Otherwise, I would try Kramercek's in NE Minneapolis or any of the Russian or Ukraine markets in town.

        They used to carry fruit-shaped marzipan candies during the holiday season at Regina's Candies in St. Paul (they didn't make them in-house, just sold them). Not sure if they still have them, but it's worth a try.

          I'm pretty sure I've seen the almond paste in both Lunds and Byerlys, in the baking aisle.

            Are you looking for marzipan paste for baking or already made sweets.

            If it's the latter go to http://latienda.com
